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.
