Born Charles-Édouard Jeanneret, Le Corbusier (1887-1965) is widely regarded as the most influential architect of the 20th century. Whether private villa or social housing: With his radical ideas, designs and writings, he was not concerned with renewing individual structures, but with reinventing the entire concept of modern living.
Le Corbusier's building projects have evolved over the years from early houses in the traditional Swiss style to gleaming white purist villas to dynamic syntheses of art and architecture such as those found in the Ronchamp Chapel and the administrative buildings in Chandigarh, India. The ability to combine functionalist approaches with a strong expressionism runs through his entire work. The social aspect of urban planning was also important to Le Corbusier - he was a founding member of the Congrès international d'architecture modern (CIAM), which defined "architecture as a social art".
Presenting some of Le Corbusier's most iconic projects, this volume introduces a modernist architect, thinker and pioneer who, even through his unrealized designs, will continue to inspire generations to come.

Morocco at heart.
Soft hills, warmth of the sun, silence, in the distance you can hear the sheep, on the hills the carpets are spread out to dry, colored surfaces in the otherwise so calm landscape. This image presents itself to the viewer when visiting the carpet regions of Morocco.
Each piece is unique
Each of our carpets, be it made to measure or a one-off, is made by hand in Morocco. Each piece is unique. Great designers such as Le Corbusier, Charles and Ray Eames or Alvar Aalto have already appreciated the simplicity and coziness of the hand-knotted masterpieces and have used them in their projects and living spaces. There is not only a lot of wool in one square meter of carpet, but also a lot of skill, time and dedication of the weavers from the Atlas Mountains. After the knotting process, the rugs are combed clean, washed and sheared several times before they are ready for the living room. In every carpet that we are allowed to deliver to our customers there is a piece of Morocco with its very own history
