In 1949 Le Corbusier conceived Applique d’entrée des appartments, a wall lamp of curved metal sheet to enlighten the entrances of the Unité d’Habitation in Marseille, the housing unit symbol of the Modern Movement in its architectural and urbanistic conception. The Master designed the paradigm of the wall lamp, giving it the maximum efficiency while hiding the light source.

Le Corbusier

“Our eyes are made to see forms in light; light and shade reveal these forms; cubes, cones, spheres, cylinders or pyramids are the great primary forms which light reveals to advantage; the image of these is distinct and tangible within us without ambiguity. It is for this reason that these are beautiful forms, the most beautiful forms”.
