In his seminal work 'Towards a new Architecture (1923)', Le Corbusier coined the phrase "a house is a machine for living". It was the dawn of design responding to the machine age. His purist rules for a new design morality were based on function, and simplified form without ornamentation. Almost a century later, Le Corbusier's words seem very appropriate in describing this kitchen, in a recent project of ours. Clean lines and simple details speak of function and machine, but luxurious and sophisticated materials say beauty and style. New modernism that's accessible, ergonomic and easy on the eyes........ plus it's a convertible.
