Le Corbusier, born Charles-Édouard Jeanneret-Gris (1887-1965), was a Swiss-French architect, designer, and urban planner who profoundly influenced 20th-century architecture and design. Renowned for his groundbreaking architectural works such as the Villa Savoye and the Unité d'Habitation, Le Corbusier also made significant contributions to furniture and lighting design.

Among his notable designs are his iconic lamps, which reflect his modernist principles and commitment to functionality and simplicity. Le Corbusier's lamps often feature clean lines, geometric shapes, and industrial materials such as metal and glass. They embody his belief in the transformative power of light to shape space and enhance the human experience.

One of his most famous lamp designs is the "Projecteur 165" lamp, also known as the "Potence" lamp, which was originally designed in 1954 for the Chandigarh High Court in India. This adjustable wall lamp features a pivoting arm and a cylindrical shade, allowing for precise control of light direction. Its sleek and minimalist design has made it a timeless classic in the world of lighting.

Another notable design is the "LC3" lamp, part of the iconic LC collection that Le Corbusier created in collaboration with Charlotte Perriand and Pierre Jeanneret. This floor lamp features a tubular steel frame and a conical shade, epitomizing the Bauhaus-inspired aesthetic of the collection.

Le Corbusier's design lamps are celebrated for their modernist elegance, functionality, and enduring appeal. They continue to be coveted by design enthusiasts and collectors worldwide, serving as timeless examples of the intersection between architecture, furniture, and lighting design in the modernist movement.
