Pierre Jeanneret

Pierre Jeanneret is a milestone in the history of architecture and design, one of the ingenious minds behind the Capitol Complex, a majestic architectural work built in Chandigarh, India, in 1951. Pierre was given the task to project the interior design and the furniture for the building with his cousin Le Corbusier. Outcome of his refined genius was an incredible collection of iconic creations, marked by the special inverted “V” sidebars. The imponent, edgy collection of chairs, armchairs, tables is made of indian cane and Vienna straw weavings. Among the most acclaimed products, the woven Chandigarh Chair, a sophisticated, and yet impactful furniture element made of solid wood.

The Indian reality influenced the artist, combining the European and the traditional Indian style.

In spite of their geometrical impactfulness, Jeanneret’s creations exude warmth and comfort.
The artist was born in 1896 in Ginevra, where he completed his studies at the École des Beaux-Arts. He started his career at Perret Brothers’ studio, and in 1922 he opened his first design studio with his renowned cousin and lifelong collaborator, Le Corbusier. Together they worked on some brilliant projects, in partnership with notable architects including Charlotte Perriand. In 1951 the two cousins were involved with other architects in the realization of the Capitol Complex. The furniture used in the Chandigarh Project aroused interest in Cassina, and the company decided to investigate the project and in particular the figure of Pierre Jeanneret, designing a collection in tribute to the artist.
