Cassina in collaboration with Richard Ginori and the Le Corbusier
Foundation
Cassina takes its inspiration from the genius of Le Corbusier for a
collection of three trays in pure, unglazed porcelain. These trays
borrow 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. Each tray, made by Richard Ginori,
includes a design sketched by the Master in 1956: the open hand
symbolising peace (square tray with rounded corners), the fish (round
tray), the movement of the sun (rectangular tray).
