Not confused enough with inches and centimetres? Well, you could add an even more confusing type of measurement into your life with the Le Corbusier Modular Measuring Tape.

Dating back to 1945, Le Corbusier developed his Modular measurement units as a universal system to replace metric and imperial in industrial design. In fact, it was used in the planning of the Unité d’Habitation in Marseille (1945-52), but sadly, not much more.

But if you want to impress your friends, confuse your enemies or bag the perfect gift for the architect in your life, you can pick up the tape in a round aluminium box with a certificate of authenticity for £45.
