Pierre Jeanneret Pair of Easy Armchairs
Price on request.
The reputation of Swiss architect and designer Pierre Jeanneret (1896-1967) is often overshadowed by that of his cousin and long-time collaborator Le Corbusier. The two had an architectural practice together for twenty years, only parting ways when, during the Second World War, Pierre joined the French resistance and Le Corb did not. Jeanneret was a strong advocate of functional modernism within his designs and this aesthetic was fully realised throughout the body of work for which he is most renowned – designing the architecture for the Indian city of Chandigarh.
Made in India in 1955, these two Easy Armchairs are made from teak with cane seats and backrests. Please note that there is a slight difference in appearance from one chair to another and these chairs have been recently re-conditioned. These chairs roughly measure 77cm in height, 56cm in length and 48cm in depth.
