Le Corbusier, City of Chandigarh
It was in the Indian city, Chandigarh, that barh found inspiration for the design of oblique. French architect Le Corbusier was in the lead of the design of this remarkable city. The Tower of Shadows, one of many architectural gems in this cultural paradise, is characterized by its open structure and oblique parts.
oblique is constructed in individual modules. The modules are positioned between one another by use of a marble frame placed in between the modules. This results in a fine nature stone line detail that shows up between the horizontal modules. The marble has both an aesthetic and functional value to the object. In this version oblique is executed in black stained ash wood in combination with Vert De Rajasthan marble.
The room divider is very modular because it works with different modules that can be stacked and positioned as wished. For example, oblique can be built up from one, two, three, or more modules, always with different functionality and see-through as a result. The modules are designed in such a way that it can be built vertically or horizontally without losing the sense of unity.
