European Light Switches in Le Corbusier’s Architectural Colors

January 19, 2016

In 1931, Swiss-French architect Le Corbusier outlined 43 architectural colors in Polychromie Architecturale, and then added an additional 20 dynamic shades to his palette in 1959. Two years ago, Les Couleurs partnered with Jung, an electronic systems company based in Schalksmühle, Germany. Jung’s Classic LS 900 Light Switch, outfitted for European homes, is available in all 63 Le Corbusier colors. Here’s a look at why those of us stateside wish we had European wiring in our houses.
