Jeanneret PJ-SI-25-A chair


France/India, 1956


£4,200 GBP

Pierre Jeanneret (1896-1967) is recognised as a pivotal figure in modernism. His collaborations with his cousin Le Corbusier are especially significant, particularly their codification of modernist architectural principles in Five Points Towards a New Architecture (1926). Towards the end of their careers the pair also designed a utopian modernist city in India – Chandigarh, and Jeanneret designed some of his most celebrated furniture designs for the administrative buildings in the city.

One example is the PJ-SI-25-A desk chair, which has subsequently become an iconic and coveted exemplar of Jeanneret’s talent. It strongly evokes the designer’s persistent form-follows-function ideology, but the chair’s identity also manages to be original, lucid and elegant, with assured interplays of geometry and balanced forms.
