Pair of Jeanneret Library Chairs

About the Item

A good authentic set of two Chandigarh chairs. Artisanally and locally made with pegged solid teak and braided canework in the 1960s. This type is known as the Library chair. The x- “frame” is beautifully complemented with the convex 'banner' type backrest. Previously restored preserving their patina and sturdy enough for everyday use. The original lettering and numbering (referring to their place in one of the government buildings still present. The way Jeanneret designed these chairs is a wonderful example of modernist ideas paired with craftsmanship and classical proportions. Together with the amazing story of Chandigarh these iconic pieces are as much a conversation piece as artworks as utilitarian. Literature: E. Touchaleaume & G. Moreau, « Le Corbusier Pierre Jeanneret – l'aventure indienne », Editions Gourcuff Gradenigo.
