The Coupé Corbusier Concept is a futuristic design study that celebrates the 50th anniversary of Le Corbusier’s passing and explores the application of his principles to an automotive project.


The design study was unveiled by Renault at Villa Savoye in Poissy, during the inauguration of the exhibition “Des voitures à habiter: automobile et modernisme XXe-XXIe siècles” (“Cars for living: the automobile and modernism in the 20th and 21st centuries”), organized by France’s Centre des Monuments Nationaux.

The development of the Coupé Corbusier started two years ago, as a purely creative project not connected to the reality of production models, an exercise that “helps [the designers] to explore new ways forward and brings creative staff “recreational” moments.”

The designers’ goal was to give an automotive form to the ideas and concepts behind modern French aesthetics, investigating the topic of “French cultural objects”.

This research and inspirations led the team back to the golden age of the automobile in the 1930s. The influence of Le Corbusier asserted itself as the obvious source of reflection, as a sort of conceptual prequel to the modern automobile.

The ideas of simplicity, visible and aesthetically-assumed structure, geometric elegance and mastery of light were the essential guidelines for the development of the car.
