Jousse Entreprise

This teak and wicker chair was designed by Pierre Jeanneret for Punjab University in Chandigarh, circa 1952-56. The wooden frame has been lightly restored and refinished; the cane work 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.
