A thought that becomes an icon
Inspired by Le Poème de l’Angle Droit, the art book published in only 250 exemplars that contains the vision of Le Corbusier on architecture, this rug portrays a lithograph in seven colours produced by the historic Paris printer, Studio Mourlot.
The collage depicts an open hand, symbol of the Indian city of Chandigarh, designed by Le Corbusier himself in the 1950s, and a key image in the maestro’s philosophy, symbolic of what is offered and received, utilised by the great architect as a metaphor for generosity and sharing in a universally meaningful gesture.
