Pierre Jeanneret, Rare Armless Easy Chair, Chandigarh, 1955
Rare Easy Chair by Pierre Jeanneret - 1955
This very rare armless easy chair by Pierre Jeanneret was created for the city of Chandigarh in India, the utopian city designed by his cousin Le Corbusier. Characteristics of this design are the solid teak frame, typical Jeanneret flat profiled leg assembly, tilted backrest, square cane backrest and cane rectangular seat. It’s a low chair with a raw appearance and a slightly patinated material. These specific features make the design even more powerful and interesting. There are only very few examples of this particular design, which makes this item highly sought after by collectors and design aficionados.
Jeanneret’s designs stand out for their essential forms and simple materials, a balance between modern European ideals and traditional Indian spirit. Another interesting and nowadays relevant fact about these and other Chandigarh chairs is that all pieces were made from the trees which were logged because of the city built, so an early adaptation of ecological thinking. We have two chairs available, priced per piece. Both chairs are in excellent original condition.
