Chandigarh Collection: La Main Ouverte porcelain tray


SKU: GNR30000

Cassina's square tray with rounded corners 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 the genius of Le Corbusier in 1956: the open hand. 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 Unitè d'Habitation on the sculptures moulèes, symbolic designs embedded by Le Corbusier in the concrete – bèton brut – taken from his figurative portfolio.
