About Le Corbusier Cufflinks – Le Modulor (1945)
The design on these iconic Le Corbusier Cufflinks 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 Cufflinks are packed in a small ACME Studios black box including a small biography of the Swiss-born architect. The design on the cufflinks is made on a cast of zinc alloy with colored enamel and an engraving of the ACME logo on the back. Care instructions: Clean with soft cloth.
About “Le Modulor/Figure” Design (1945)
The “Le Modulor/Figure” design featured on these beautiful Le Corbusier Cufflinks is inspired in the 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. Le Corbusier argued that a system of measurement based upon the human, as “the measure of all things” could subsequently provide a more realistic set of measurements that may greatly influence architecture. 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.
