In the early 1950s Pierre Jeanneret began a new project at Chandigarh, in India, at the invitation of his cousin Le Corbusier, then at work on a groundbreaking architectural program there. When Le Corbusier opted out halfway through, Jeanneret became the undertaking's chief architect and urban designer. At the same time he created a furniture style to be used for the government offices and a number of private homes
The Project: Chandigarh
India was too poor at that time to build factories to make the furniture and buy machines: that’s the reason why all the Chandigarh furniture has been produced by hand, by very small workshops or individual craftsmen who were just following Jeanneret’s instructions as well as they could. All the furniture had to built locally, using the natural resources, wood and cane, which were easy to find and cheap.
The stool at Home
The stool and its geometry is very minimal and strong in itself. Works as sculpture...or as a real stool.
