Le Corbusier, the Swiss pioneer of modern architecture and design, first championed cold rationalism—think hard-edged metal tube chairs and monolithic concrete apartment buildings—but later in his career he revealed a softer side, creating a little-known wood furniture collection in the 1950s. Now the Italian manufacturer Cassina has reissued four of these pieces—including a whimsical coat rack, a whiskey-crate-inspired stool, and a round, oak-topped dining table—all faithfully reproduced to Corbusier's exacting specifications.
