Le-Corbusier-Appartement-50-in-Marseille-by-Pierre-Charpin-Yellowtrace-05French designer Pierre Charpin is the latest in a line of contemporary creatives  given free reign over a single apartment designed by Le Corbusier. Apartment 50, a unit in Le Corbusier’s famous Cité radieuse apartment complex in Marseilles, France, has been preserved in its original state, given Historic Monument status, and repurposed into a dreamy revolving gallery space against which an elite group of product designers are invited to display their wares. Charpin’s esthetic, expressed in his sophisticated furniture, objects and art, are particularly suited to the apartment’s existing furnishings by Le Corbusier and Charlotte Perriand, his finely honed sense of color and form a visual complement to the sensibilities of those two supreme Modernists. Le Corbusier, we suspect, would approve.
