It was 1952 when Le Corbusier designed Borne Béton for the outdoor area of the Unité d’Habitation in Marseille and to enlighten Bhakra Dam, Sukhna Dam in India. An early experiment in the use of concrete for a collection of lamps along the lines of Brutalist architecture. Raw, spartan concrete is combined with a built-in LED source, combining different volumes emphasised by light. The small aesthetic and finishing variations make each Borne Béton a unique project.
Le Corbusier’s interest in fine arts from an early age led him to focus on architectural designs made up of lines and geometric colour blocks. For him, painting, sculpture and architecture are not isolated disciplines.Discover
