CASSINA MEETS GINORI 1735 - A TRIBUTE TO LE CORBUSIER

Two heritage companies with deep roots in the history of design and Italian production, and tributes Le Corbusier. ‘The Cassina Perspective’ is a holistic approach that offers a unique and complete approach to the home. Considering this, Cassina has developed a collection by Le Corbusier in collaboration with Ginori 1735 and the Le Corbusier Foundation.

A proposal for the table Service Prunier and a selection of decorative trays Collection Chandigarh.

 

SERVICE PRUNIER

This dinner service was originally produced for the Prunier restaurant in London. On the wall of a private room of the restaurant, Madame Prunier had hung the Les Mains tapestry that Le Corbusier had designed in 1951. In 1961, she decided to commission Le Corbusier to design a dinner service for the restaurant with the same motif of the intertwined hands that can be found on the lower part of the tapestry. Le Corbusier had carefully made some colour variations for this dinner set, including a plum tone for the coloured part on which the three entwined hands drawn with a thin black line come together. Le Corbusier himself used thesesame dishes in which he combined,as he himself said, quality and taste “the taste of shape”.

COLLECTION CHANDIGARH

Each tray in the Collection Chandigarh, produced by Ginori 1735, has a decorative symbol that was designed by Le Corbusier in 1956. Probably the most recognisable and recurring in his architecture, featured on the square tray with rounded corners, is the hand: the eternal symbol of peace. The round tray features a fish and the rectangular tray the solar movement. Made in matt white porcelain with a biscuit effect, the simple lines and minimal shapes of these trays are perfect both for the table and to display.
