Re: Re: Save E.1027
Enjoyed it and Le Corbusier did come across horrendously.
It was sad the way it all worked out for her but don’t forget that, at the time, it wasn’t a particularly feted house and it was sold on to someone else and Corb only painted a few murals on the walls. You could argue that it was in a pique of jealousy or you could argue that he was using an influential client to flog his own wares. It’s a pity he didn’t do it more on his own blandness.
I find all that designing everything down to the doorknobs a bit overwhelming. I did like some of her furniture though – the black and chrome sofa; and the coffee table that converted into a writing desk in particular.
