Born Charles-Edouard Jeanneret, French designer Le Corbusier studied at the La-Chaux-de-Fonds Art School.
Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret, and a young woman called Charlotte Perriand presented new concepts of furniture at the Salon d'Automne in Paris in 1929. That collection of iconic furniture has not dated in the slightest, and still fits perfectly with the modern home today. 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.
