Degisn Maestro

Anyone who follows architecture or any aspect of design, will have heard of  Le Corbusier - he was one of the most important players in the world of modern architecture. 

To celebrate his work, the Barbican have put together an exhibiton, Le Corbusier - The Art of Artchitecture. Which, I can't wait to see and promises to be a real treat with talks, events and imagery of this amazing man's achievements. 

Of course, he also designed a chair or two as well! In fact, it seems everyone who's anyone in the design world, has at some point designed a chair.

I love this LC1 chair (design is now under license by Cassina) and short of being able to afford one of his buildings, I'll settle for this chair to add to my ever growing museum of design classics.
