In 1952, on the shores of the French Riviera, Le Corbusier built “Cabanon”: the absolute archetype of essential living. The project, executed according to the rules of the Modulor, is found just a stone’s throw away from the sea and served as a refuge for the architect in his final years.

Lampe Cabanon, named after the inspired microcosm, represents a symbol of architecture, design, production, and essential living. The lampshade, made from tracing paper that the architect used, was crafted from a wartime artifact – a mortar shell carrier – found on French beaches.

The lamp, for which numerous sketches and designs exist, represents a moment of rebirth in the post-war world.

“I feel so good in my cabanon that I will definitely end my life here”
Le Corbusier
