This is such a striking design. Even better, the Parliament floor light by Le Corbusier is back available once more.
When you think of Le Corbusier you tend to think of modernism of the early part of the 20th century. But this is one of the great man’s later designs, produced in 1964, which was just a year before his death at the age of 77. Yes, even in his late 70s he was producing designs like this.
It was actually designed for the Chandigarh Parliament in India, hence the name. But this isn’t a functional light for public spaces. Well, it could be. But looking at it now, this is very much a light for the home and for the modern home. This is a design that has aged well over the decades. But still with enough retro character to pull in the sixties crowd.
In terms of the design, the Parliament has double, adjustable light emission from two aluminium diffusers. These diffusers are available in a choice of colours, with the stem in a matt grey. 2x 52w bulbs are required and not included. Just so you know.
Fancy some Le Corbusier in your home? This doesn’t come cheap at £885, but for a timeless piece of design by Le Corbusier, it isn’t outside the realms of possibility either.
