Le Corbusier is a famous french architect, with his original designs still in production by NEMO Lighting. Le Corbusier was born Charles-Edouard Jeanneret-Gris in Switzerland on October 6, 1887. In 1917, he moved to Paris and assumed the pseudonym Le Corbusier. In his architecture, he built with steel and reinforced concrete and worked with elemental geometric forms. Le Corbusier’s painting emphasised clear forms and structures, which corresponded to his architecture.
