“I am an architect, but I am also a painter – there are two souls dwelling in my chest,” once said Le Corbusier, master builder of the 20th century. Indeed, it was his artistic oeuvre that enabled Le Corbusier’s architectural designs and which serves as the fundament of Schaffhausen-based Gallery Mera’s concept. At the same time, owners Karin and Tomas Rabara have also specialised in original vintage posters dating to the first half of the 20th century. Karin and Tomas Rabara became gallerists more or less by accident. “At the beginning there was Le Corbusier,” recounts the couple. “12 years ago, I was looking for a present for my wife who had worked at the Centre Le Corbusier in Zurich and who was entirely besotted with his artwork,” explains Tomas Rabara.
