Assigned task


Designed by Le Corbusier for the High Court of Chandigarh in 1954, this product remained unreleased until 2012, when it was found in the archives of the Le Corbusier Foundation in Paris. Nemo asked Studio Volpi to make the project engineering of this beautiful and iconic lamp



As only a side view of the design had remained, it was necessary to “rebuild” its functional aesthetic, choosing finishes and details to suit the language of shipbuilding work.



The re-release of the Projecteur took shape thanks to research conducted by Nemo, in close collaboration with the Le Corbusier Foundation.

Projecteur 365 Le Corbusier won the Wallpaper * Design Award 2013 as best reissue.
