Chandigarh collection: Le Course du Soleil porcelain rectangular tray

SKU: GNR31000

Cassina's rectangular tray designed in collaboration with Richard Ginori and the Le Corbusier Foundation Cassina. Crafted in white pure, unglazed porcelain, it includes a design sketched by the genius of Le Corbusier in 1956: the movement of the sun. The collection borrows some of the bas-relief symbols chosen for the walls of the buildings of Chandigarh, the city designed in the 1950s and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The same procedure can be seen in Marseille in the Unité d'Habitation on the sculptures moulées, symbolic designs embedded by Le Corbusier in the concrete – béton brut – taken from his figurative portfolio.
