Pierre Jeanneret ‘Library’ chair, model no. PJ-SI-51-A


France/India, 1956


£POA

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.

The Library chair 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.

Designed for the High Court and Punjab University, Chandigarh.

In good vintage condition, the wood shows some sign of age.
