History lesson: Le Corbusier mid-century furniture design

Le Corbusier is the pseudonym adopted by French designer Charles-Edouard Jeanneret. He was an architect,  a painter and a sculptor, with a tremendous input to the modern  design. The clean aesthetics, with straight lines in a minimalist spirit are his legacy. His vision and flair are still an influence for today’s product design, and easily integrated in any contemporary interior.
