Lampe De Marseille, Le Corbusier at Bombyx showroom


Apartment 11 is located on the 3rd floor of a modernist building in the centre of Athens, designed by architect Stamos Papadakis in 1933. For ten years it was closed and neglected, but after it's recent renovation by esé Studio Architects recovered it's previous glory. Today is the showroom of Bombyx which features a covetable selection of top established and up-and-coming brands in the fields of furniture, lighting, objects and architectural materials. In the above photo you can see the wall lamp "Lampe De Marseille" designed by Le Corbusier for the Unité d’Habitation, Marseille in 1950, produced by Nemo.

We visited the showroom this Saturday during the 4th OPEN HOUSE Athens event and had the guided tour, but the showroom is open from Monday to Friday 10 to 6, and it is definitely worth a visit!
