056 CAPITOL COMPLEX TABLE
- I Contemporanei
The inclusion of the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2016 has aroused great interest in Le Corbusier’s Capitol Complex, an extraordinary architectural work created in Chandigarh in 1951 to celebrate the independence of a nation open to modernity. Among the furniture used in the Legislative Assembly building is this large conference table. Almost as if to evoke the solemn functions of the place, this model has a base made up of two important and graphic solid wood elements with a characteristic “corns entrecroisées” shape. In addition to the historic version with teak top and structure, the Cassina re-edition offers two variants in natural and black stained oak and the option of a glass top in different sizes.
