Cassina, in collaboration with the Le Corbusier Foundation, is proud to present the first U.S. exhibition of Le Corbusier: The Interior of the Cabanon, Le Corbusier 1952 - Cassina Reconstruction 2006. This highly anticipated exhibit will take place at the Cassina Miami showroom during Design Miami 2012, running from December 6, 2012 until January 12, 2013. The exhibition features the authentic reconstruction of the actual interior of the Cabanon, which Le Corbusier planned and built in 1952 for his holidays in Cap-Martin, France. The Cabanon is an apparently unpretentious sea-side hut, comprising a remarkable example of significant micro-architecture. The Cabanon will be reconstructed in the Cassina Miami showroom. Jean-Louis Cohen, a renowned Le Corbusier scholar and professor of architecture at New York University, will curate the exhibition.
The Cabanon, which was conceived, designed and built by Le Corbusier for his personal use, comprises the ideal conditions of architectural planning, the dialectic synthesis between the concept and the accomplishment. It represents the antithesis of those architects who see a home as a kind of fetish to emulate or, perhaps more disturbingly, as a projection of oneself.
Cassina Miami will also showcase a collection of Le Corbusier furniture designed together with Pierre Jenneret and Charlotte Perriand highlighting the veritable relationship between Cassina and Le Corbusier.
