Designer Le Corbusier
This stool/low table was created for the children’s rooms in the Unité d’Habitation in Nantes Rezé. Designed using the poetics of the objet trouvé, dear to Le Corbusier in the latter part of his life, this piece is now available with a number of added details compared to the original in the Cassina collection. Developed after the first design for the Tabouret Cabanon in 1952, whose main face measured 43cm x 43cm, this piece was a precursor to the 43cm x 33cm Tabouret du Brésil, the main difference being that its joints were less complex. The other two versions are characterised by dovetail joints while this version privileges simple right-angles. The different faces, in open-pore varnished oak, is available in two of the Corbusier palette colours: ultramarine blue and brown. The rectangular slots each side, featuring unrounded corners, are used for lifting and moving the stool.
