Italian lighting design firm Nemo has reissued Le Corbusier’s Borne Béton lamp, originally designed by the architect in 1952. The cement lamp was released as part of Nemo’s 2016 collection, which was unveiled during this year’s Milan design week.
Le Corbusier, one of the most important pioneers of Modernist architecture, originally created the Beton lamp to illuminate walkways at his Unité d’habitation de Marseille.
a pure yet functional volume, whose shape is plastic but efficient thanks to its massive concrete reflector shape
It is a shape that has inspired a number of other products but still the harmony of the original remain unsurpassed.
The new editions of the robust concrete piece will be available in two sizes: a large outdoor version, and a smaller desk-top size.
