As a design tool, color is unquestionably just as powerful as it is important. With its “True Thinline Les CouleursTM Le Corbusier” range, which has been produced as part of its partnership with Les Couleurs Suisse, Rado has created nine exceptional, limited-edition special models, which employ the color keyboards of Le Corbusier and can be seen during the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK as part of a richly-colorful installation in the Festival Headquarters: This architectural spectrum was developed between 1931 and 1959 and consists of 63 colors with an architectural significance. They continue to be used to this day by many architects and designers. The theory of architectural polychromy is just one of the many achievements of Le Corbusier. He is famous as an artist and architect and for his skill in using materials and is also regarded as the father of modern architecture.
