Le Corbusier - Stool

In the 1950s, Charles Edouard Jeanneret or "Le Corbusier" created the Unité d'habitation, also called the Cité Radieuse, a residential complex in four different cities in France: Marseille, Rezé (Nantes), Firminy and Briey. This living complex was intended to "show the way ahead". The huge rectangular construction comprises communal rooms, shops (also the "Le Corbusier" hotel), a kindergarten, a bar, a theatre etc. On some floors "rues intérieures" complete the internal facilities. The "House" - which also contains the supply services - represents a whole town for some 1,600 inhabitants. The basic idea behind these projects was to provide accommodation for as many people as possible in the smallest possible area while leaving room for green open spaces.

The design of the stools was first used in the Cabanon Le Corbusier and Unités de camping in Roquebrune-Cap Martin (1951 - 1952). Le Corbusier designed the cabanon in accordance with the proportions of his Modulor and furnished it with furniture prototypes in solid wood. The small building was itself a prototype for the Unités de camping which Le Corbusier created for Thomas Rebutato. The stools were produced in solid chestnut and are equipped with six open handles, one on each side of the cube. The design was reused in the Unité d'habitation in a more cost-effective manner. The wood is of a lesser quality and the handles are now angular rather than rounded.
