THE COLLECTION: “This collection was inspired by Le Corbusier's Purist Period where he made use of elemental geometric forms (circles, cylinders, arcs, semicircles and squares, rectangles and straight lines). These forms are clearly defined, meaning there is no subtle transition between a cylindric column and a square wall, which makes the characteristics of each element collection very apparent. Lastly, the seamless usage and contrast between concrete and glass or water (heavy vs light elements) used in his buildings of this period is also a fundamental aspect that inspired this collection.”
