LC2 Stone Le Corbusier

This is fabulous. Swiss architect and designer, Stefan Zwicky , sets Le Corbusier’s LC2 armchair in stone. With concrete and rebar he transforms this icon of design with an industrial, postmodern twist. The concrete corbusier, yes please. http://www.bauhaus-movement.com

Vintage 1945 Le Corbusier — Paris

1945 Le Corbusier – Die zweite limitierte Uhrenedition von Girard Perregaux umfasst Modelle, die an Le Corbusiers Beitrag im Bereich dekorativer Kunst erinnern, in dem er sich auf die Wirkung von Material konzentrierte. Zum Beispiel die Kombination eines Stahlgerüsts mit Kuhhaut wie in der Chaiselongue von Le Corbusier. Das handgravierte Zifferblatt zitiert seine Anwendung von Licht sowie sein System Modulor, ein architektonisches Proportionsschema, das auf den menschlichen Maßen und dem Goldenen Schnitt basiert.

Centre Le Corbusier

The Centre Le Corbusier or Heidi Weber Museum is an art museum in Zürich (Switzerland) dedicated to the work of the Swiss architect Le Corbusier. In 1960, Heidi Weber had the vision to establish a museum designed by Le Corbusier. This building should exhibit his works of art in an ideal environment created by the architect himself.

In 1960 Le Corbusier was mandated by Heidi Weber, a Swiss art collector and patron, to conceive a public exhibition building. One year later, the first drawings for a building to be constructed in concrete were presented, in 1962 the concept was changed to a steel building. Two years later the construction was started, in 1965 Le Corbusier died, and on July 15, 1967, the Centre Le Corbusier was officially inaugurated.
