Radieuse Wall Lamp
Le Corbusier, 1949

Radieuse Wall Lamp Le Corbusier, 1949

Le Corbusier designed the Applique Radieuse in 1949 to equip the entrance to the apartments of the famous Marseille Housing Unit, symbol of the Modern Movement in its architectural and urban design.

Composed of a colored curved sheet masking the light source, the Radiant Wall Lamp can be installed to light up or down, for direct or diffused light. The colors are the same as those adopted for the Housing Unit: the iconic red, blue, white, orange and green.

Le Corbusier's architectural work comprising seventeen sites (including ten in France, the others being spread over three continents) was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site on July 17, 2016.

Le Corbusier's work and thought were particularly influential on post-war generations of architects and widely disseminated, before entering, with the period of postmodernism, a phase of significant and regular contestation.
