Description

Galerie Patrick Seguin

The Library chairs were intended for the Chandigarh project in India. Commissioned by Nehru to construct Chandigarh -the new capital of the Punjab region- when India gained independence in 1947, Le Corbusier designed a project that would illustrate the country’s bright future. Pierre Jeanneret, Le Corbusier’s cousin and lifelong collaborator, was entrusted the designing of most of the furniture of the city. This elegant set of chairs in teak, a material originally adapted to the local climate, exquisitely blend into contemporary interiors. This set presents a beautiful wood patina.
