The British design company has created its own “Modular Man” in the form of a mirror to celebrate “Le Corbusier- The Art of Architecture” currently showing at the Barbican, London. Le Corbusier (1887-1965) is widely renowned as one of the key pioneers of modern architecture. His study of the “Modular Man” was influenced by the Golden Ratio, the Fibonacci sequence, and Leonardo Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man. Based on the correlations of ideal human proportions and geometry, this formula was incorporated by Le Corbusier in the proportions of architecture to improve its appearance and function in ‘a range of harmonious measurements to suit the human scale, universally applicable to architecture and mechanical things.’
Linley’s Modular Man Mirror made of 6mm glass mounted on a blackboard stands 175cms tall true to the dimensions of Le Corbusier’s sketch of the Modular man. The Modular Man Mirror is a tribute to the pioneer of design architecture is available from Linley’s shop for $2300.
