About Le Corbusier Rollerball Pen - Le Modulor Figure - ACME Studio

The design on this iconic Le Corbusier Rollerball Pen by ACME Studio is inspired in the world-renowned architect’s “Le Modulor” theory. Le Corbusier’s Modulor is based upon the tradition of establishing mathematical relations to the proportions of the human body, such as the Renaissance Master Leonardo Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man. This set of cufflinks are part of ACME Studios’ Le Corbusier collection of office accessories featuring key rings, card cases, rollerball pens that can be matched with the cufflinks as a perfect gift for any architects, art lovers and Le Corbusier fans. Le Corbusier's Le Modulor/Figure is the result of the iconic architect’s mathematical twenty-year long study on human proportions in 1945, which later awarded him a degree of Dr. h.c. in philosophy and mathematics at the University of Zurich. Throughout the world there are various systems of measurement established, however, Le Corbusier believed that a set of measurements should be set, based upon the mathematical proportions of human anatomy. Although Le Corbusier’s approach in relating architecture on the proportionality of the human body, is regarded as one of the most controversial approaches to architecture it is still used today by engineers and architect throughout the world.

Le Corbusier

Le Corbusier (Charles-Édouard Jeanneret-Gris) was a Swiss-French architect. By moving urban architecture into the technological era, he perpetuated the idea that architecture can serve utilitarian and utopic purposes. His style arose from his desire to provide better and more practical living conditions for residents of crowded cities. above all, he remains one of the most influential architects of the 20th-century.
During his career, he constructed buildings throughout Europe, India, and America, and he impressed with his talents around the world. He was also an accomplished painter and also devoted to various other art forms. He adopted the name Le Corbusier in 1920, probably after a growing dissatisfaction with the Cubist movement. Considered to be the master of modern architecture, Le Corbusier has only been matched by Frank Lloyd Wright. He was a founding member of the Congrès International d’Architecture Moderne (CIAM) and has hugely influenced urban planning. Eventually, his plans and vision will go down as some of the most important in architectural history.
