We are happy to learn that UNESCO adds Le Corbusier projects to World Heritage List. Great architecture always is a source of inspiration for us as we believe:

“FURNITURE IS ARCHITECTURE ON A DIFFERENT SCALE”

Le Corbusier was one of the most important and influential architects of the 20th Century.
He consequently separated load and nonload bearing elements. By using a system of posts, no limits were set in designing the floor plans. Instead of the usual high windows, Le Corbusier used wide windows and achieved a significantly better and more uniform exposure. In the 1920s, Le Corbusier experimented with colours, and their architectural effect. For him, the colour of a building was as important as the layout and form.
