Le Corbusier, as a Modernist architect and designer, had always supported the ideals of simple and honest design, and therefore he did not compromise with decorative arts, or what we now call Art Deco(which are influenced from art nouveau). Decorative arts, for Le Corbusier, should be separated from the tools; he also blamed the deceit in ornamentation, as it disguised the flaws in manufacture, \ that it hides faults or poor quality of materials used......Adolf Loos's "Ornament and Crime" written in 1908 gave Le Corbusier new ideas about decorative arts. As pointed out by James Dunnett, from Form and Function : 'His absolute rejection of ornament must owe much to the influence of this "sensational article", and he credits Loos a little grudgingly with the formulation: the more cultivated a people becomes, the more decoration disappears. His primary argument asserting the importance of the distinction between a work of art and an object of use can also be found in Loos'....see how he influenced by adolf loos...hehheheeehee.....Le Corbusier, being the most prominent figure of the modernist, was inspired by a new machine aesthetic and stripped away unnecessary ornament from design, interior and other related fields. He was inspired by the ideals of rationalization and standardization.
