He was born as Charles-Edouard Jeanneret. Le Corbusier was attracted to the visual arts and studied at the La-Chaux-de-Fonds Art School. In Paris, in 1929, there were some new concepts of furniture on display at the Salon d'Automne.
They had been designed by Charles-Edouard Jeanneret, better known as Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret, and a young woman called Charlotte Perriand.
This furniture has not dated in the slightest, and even today fits perfectly with the modern home. This is mainly due to Le Corbusier's conviction that the binomial shape/function value must be expressed in the three dimensional manifestation of any daily used and useful object.
