About the Item

Balkrishna Doshi, Le Corbusier Ahmedabad console/desk. Chandigarh c. 1960. Solid teak stained black. Originally designed by Indian architect B.V Doshi under the supervision of Le Corbusier for the Mills Owners Association building in Ahmedabad, this console/desk was also produced by the Chandigarh workshop in the name of Le Corbusier and used for the hospital building in Chandigarh.
