"La Main Ouverte" Square Tray - Collection Chandigarh

Cassina & Ginori 1735 - A tribute to 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 inspired by Le Corbusier in collaboration with Ginori 1735 and the Le Corbusier Foundation.

Cassina has been inspired by the genius of Le Corbusier for this collection composed of three trays in unglazed porcelain that each feature bas-relief symbols taken from the walls of buildings in Chandigarh, the city he designed in the 1950s and now a world heritage site. In this project Le Corbusier summarises his architectural and urban ideals, expressing his creativity in sculptural and figurative terms. As he had already done in Marseilles in the Unité d'habitation with the sculptures moulées, he imprinted symbolic drawings on the béton brut concrete walls of various buildings, the same symbols taken from his figurative repertoire and the Indian culture.

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.
