The lacquered colours of LCS1 in Le Corbusier’s collection are hand made in an artisan workshop in Faenza by processing porcelain stoneware slabs. The intent is to bring an industrial product back to a new life by using colours that well represent the feeling and excellence of ancient covering tiles. Therefore little imperfections, deformations, irregularity in surface and colour are a peculiarity of this manual process and add to the charm of the product.
The influence of Le Corbusier, a pioneer of modern architecture in the twentieth century, has been wide ranging, including the Le Corbusier LCS Ceramics collection, available exclusively at Artedomus.
LCS Ceramics is based on Le Corbusier’s use of reinforced concrete in architecture, which came to be known as béton brut, and his Polychromie Architecturale system, which explores how colour can affect spaces and people.
The collection includes béton brut-inspired finishes, glazed colours, tiles engraved with linear bas relief, speckled and textured surfaces.
