Le Corbusier

Born as Charles-Edouard Jeanneret-Gris on 1887 in Sweden, He assumed the Le Corbusier pseudonym when he moved to Paris in 1917. He was a Swiss-French architect, designer, painter, urban planner, writer, and one of the pioneers of what is now called modern architecture. He’s got a long list of achievements under his name including what many architectural historians called as "the machine age." But he will forever be known as the icon of modernism because of his contributions to modern architecture that is also evident in his furniture creations. He was quoted as saying:” Chairs are architecture, sofas are bourgeois.”
