Project Summary

Le Corb was the fruit of an Industrial Design Material and Tools class. Students were supposed to select a designer, study their work and come up with a design solution for a coffee table that was influenced by the selected designer.

Le Crob was a group project that included a Coffee Table and a Lamp. The coffee table was designed by Amin Ghassemi based on his interpretations of Le Corbusier’s (Modernist French Architect) designs.
