Pierre Jeanneret

A teak and cane chair originally designed for Civil Servants by Swiss architect Pierre Jeanneret in the 1950s for the utopian Indian city of Chandigarh, the design was just one of several by Jeanneret that would be produced by the thousands for the city created by his cousin Le Corbusier.
Soon enough these humidity and insect resistant chairs were discarded in their thousands in favour of more contemporary designs…. many piling up around the city or sold as scrap at local auctions for a few rupees. 
Dealers soon discovered and extensively restored the originals which are now being snaps up for thousands of dollars across the world. These simple, strong minimal chairs have become a favourite among celebrated designs such as Belgian Axel Vervoodt and Frenchman Joseph Dirand.
