Tapis La Main Ouverte

Tapis La Main Ouverte

DESIGNED BY Le Corbusier
FOR Cassina

Inspired by Le Poème de l’Angle Droit, the art book published in only 250 exemplars that contains the vision of Le Corbusier on architecture, this rug portrays a lithograph in seven colours produced by the historic Paris printer, Studio Mourlot.

Starting from $9,561 inc. GST

INFO

The collage depicts an open hand, symbol of the Indian city of Chandigarh, designed by Le Corbusier himself in the 1950s, and a key image in the maestro’s philosophy, symbolic of what is offered and received, utilised by the great architect as a metaphor for generosity and sharing in a universally meaningful gesture.

The uniqueness of Tapis La Main Ouverte lies in the entirely artisan production technique – each rug contains 72,300 knots per square metre, each one strictly tied by hand.
