Italian ceramics manufacturer Gigacer recently announced its latest venture, titled the LCS Ceramics collection at Milan Design Week. It consists of tiles that draw directly from Le Corbusier’s groundbreaking mid-century aesthetic. In the 1930s, the French modernist architect made a color guide called the Polychromie Architecturale, that displayed how color affected people and spaces before suggesting combinations that would trigger varying effects and emotions. The tiles are 30cm wide and 120cm high, and work either on the floor or wall. The tiles are exclusively available from Domus Tiles.

Make sure to check out Le Corbusier’s La Cité Radieuse complex in Marseilles when it was given an illusory makeover by Felice Varini.
