Pierre Jeanneret Chandigarh High Court bench

Jeanneret, Pierre, Benches, India, 1950s

A bench from the Chandigarh High Court, by Pierre Jeanneret. The bench stands on four teak legs and has a black skai upholstery. It has the text 'advocates only' written on the backside.

A rare piece in an original raw condition. It comes from the first lot that left Chandigarh and has a pristine provenance.

In 1950 the world renowned architect Le Corbusier was asked to design the capital of the states of Haryana and Punjab in the newly independent India. Le Corbusier designed the master plan and a number of buildings. Pierre Jeanneret, his cousin, served as the site architect and was responsible for all the furniture, or 'Equipment' as Le Corbusier preferred to call it. For this project they stepped away from mass produced steel and relied on the skills of local craftsmen. Jeanneret also designed several buildings for the city and the furniture for many projects, including the High Court.

We have several pieces by Jeanneret available.
