Doshi Levien continue the series of design objects in dialogue with iconic architecture of India by modernist master, Le Corbusier. Corbusier created some of his most ambitious works in the subcontinent where the Utopian vision of post colonial independent India found expression in her architecture. Corbusier was commissioned by the first Prime Minister of India – Pandit Nehru to create the master plan of the new capital city of Chandigarh where he subsequently also designed 6 public buildings. Doshi and Levien engaged in a dialogue with the work of Le Corbusier and designed this cabinet as an offering to his architecture.
Le Cabinet is a collaboration with Manufacture nationale de Sèvres situated in Paris and renowned for their exquisite work in Porcelain since 1740. The doors of the cabinet display a composition of porcelain components that showcase the remarkable skills of the craftspeople of Sèvres.
