Le Corbusier (1887-1965) is one of the most illustrious names in world architecture of the twentieth century. Swiss by birth, but French by adoption, he is considered the great master of the Modern Movement, a current that revolutionized architecture in the period between the two World Wars. Refined theorist, he effectively conceptualized the pillars of a new architecture, destined to change the world, and of a revolutionary urban conception. He was a pioneer in the use of concrete and designed buildings that have now risen to symbolize the twentieth century, such as Ville Savoye, the Chapel of Notre-Dame du Haut or the Unité d'Habitation complex in Marseille. He was also a designer, author also in this field of products that have made history, often in collaboration with his cousin Pierre Jeanneret and his assistant Charlotte Perriand. His furniture was re-edited in series starting in 1965 by the Italian Cassina company, in an operation of great philological rigor and extraordinary success, while his lamps are now produced by Nemo.
