This teak and leather chair was designed by Pierre Jeanneret for Punjab University in Chandigarh, circa 1955-56. The wooden surfaces have been lightly refinished, and the leather is new.
Swiss-born architect and furniture designer Jeanneret (1896-1967) worked for most of his life alongside his cousin Le Corbusier. In the early 1950s, they took on a massive urban planning project in Chandigarh, India, designing and producing low cost buildings for the community. The city evolved into a landmark of modernist architecture.
