JEAN NOUVEL & THE MASTERS the object that they would like to have in their home, among the others that were chosen before. The origin isn’t very important… but the style is! What do you think makes the design of these lamps timeless? These lamps are in no way timeless... Fortunately! They are sensitive testimonies of modern times. What makes them modern is the freedom with which the intimate space is created, with contrasts, emotions, surprises and this relevance that makes us say: this is where they belong! JEAN NOUVEL, ARCHITECT ► What is your perception of the research and design work of...

FONDATION LE CORBUSIER ► « An electric lamp is now a common object; so, why these half measures, instead of a bulb only, with a simple lampshade of thin and opal glass, that will give the impression of naturalness and simplicity. » Tanizaki Junichirô In Praise of Shadows MICHEL RICHARD, FONDATION LE CORBUSIER, DIRECTOR (from 2004 to 2017) In the Maison La Roche, designed in 1925 in Auteuil, Le Corbusier, toughens Tanizaki’s proposal, aligning three simple bulbs, fixed to the ceiling with tubes of the collector’s dining-room. He then used the same principal to punctuate the photographic...

lampadine nude, all’estremità di un’asta o su applique formate da un tubolare a L molto corto e collocate negli angoli. Sulle scale, la passeggiata architettonica è guidata dalle lampade da parete Chalier, un ready-made adattato con dei neon; gli spazi riservati al riposo ed alla lettura sono illuminati semplicemente da lampade appoggiate su dei tavoli. Solo la grande lampada disegnata nel 1928 costituisce una vera creazione che struttura il grande volume dello spazio espositivo, valorizzando dolcemente i dipinti cubisti e puristi, proteggendoli dalla luce del sole che si leva sul muro di...

► Arthur Ruegg / architect ► Le Corbusier considered the simple bulb of La Roche lamp as the perfect result of an industrial process, of an evolution during which common object becomes a perfect tool, worthy to be shown as it is. After the second world war, he added to these "type-objects” a complete series of lamps that, designed by him and identified as the "synthesis of major Arts” becomes fundamental part of a masterpiece, sculpture-lamps that go far beyond their simple function. ► Le Corbusier considerait l’ampoule nue de l’applique La Roche comme le re-sultat parfait d’un processus...

«Les lampes de Le Corbusier et Charlotte Perriand furent conçues pour des projets d’architecture innovants et radicalement modernes, mais leurs qualités intrinsèques sont évidentes, indépendamment de leur environnement. Elles suggèrent aujourd’hui un design intemporel qui les rend simples, iconiques, et toujours authentiques.» ► Federico Palazzari / ceo, nemo PROJECTEUR 365 Le Corbusier, 1954 on this page Original sketch ©FLC/ADAGP.

ARCHIVES CHARLOTTE PERRIAND PERNETTE PERRIAND-BARSAC, JACQUES BARSAC, ARCHIVES CHARLOTTE PERRIAND ► Editing Charlotte Perriand lightings with nemo means let past creations live again in the modern world, to make them accessible to a large number of people. It means to demonstrate that “correct” works, created 50 or 70 years ago, still respond to modern needs. Most of the avant-garde people, as Charlotte Perriand, always wanted to reach the masses but at the time they did not succeed. Thanks to nemo, what was impossible in the past, today it is realized. It is always a great satisfaction for...
