Le Corbusier Furnishings Revived by Cassina

Those with a love of mid-century modernist will certainly celebrate Cassina’s revival of Le Corbusier furnishings. Wallpaper* reports, “Modernist master Le Corbusier had strict design principles, which he applied just as rigorously to furniture design as to his more widely known architectural projects. For him, ‘the smallest pencil stroke had to have a point, to fulfil a need, or respond to a gesture or posture’, recalled Charlotte Perriand, his long-time furniture collaborator. This ruthless purity of approach paid off, making his designs as relevant today as they were over half a century ago – so much so that Cassina has just revived four of his remarkable pieces for its ongoing ‘Cassina I Maestri’ collection, started by the great man himself in 1964.”

The collection includes boxes, tables, and writing desks of utmost simplicity.
