Description:

The Pierre Jeanneret chair was mainly designed in 1950 by Pierre Jeanneret. Pierre Jeanneret chair and his cousin Le Corbusier resided in India in the ’50s and had significant contributions to a massive urban planning project of Chandigarh. Though Le Corbusier discontinued his contribution from the project, Jeanneret actively contributed for the next 15 years. Therefore, the modern, classic Pierre Jeanneret chair was created to pay respect for his inspiring contributions.

The Pierre Jeanneret is a simple yet elegant floating back armchair inspired by the mid-century modern design of Chandigarh. It is also known as an office chair. The especially of the chair is that all the components of the chair are made with solid local wood that gives a sense of sophistication. Besides, the sidebars of the chair are cut from Burma teak trees to protect against bugs. It also comes with a very unique and classic Inverted ‘V’ shape that supports the armrests and protects against bugs and humidity. Moreover, the backrest and the seat of the chair are made with a distinctive Viennese woven cane frame.

The chair was relaunched by Cassina in 2019. The masterwork of Jeanneret is an exclusive complimentary artwork of structural perfection and mesmerizing modernistic beauty with a touch of highest quality, lightweight materials including wood and cane.

The sophisticated Pierre Jeanneret chair is a masterwork that represents simplicity and a timeless aura. This unique collection adds to the beauty of any residence and workplace.

About the Designer

See Full Collection of Charles and Ray Eames

Charles and Ray Eames considered as one of the most influential designers of the 20th century. Charles E. was born in St Louis, Missouri. Perhaps decorated as the finest American designer of his generation, Charles E. was heavily influenced by his uncle’s workings, the great architect William S. Eames.Despite a healthy education studying architecture at Washington University in St. Louis, Eames best began to put his ideas into motion whilst working as a laborer at the Laclede Steel Company in the town of his birth. Here, he received first-hand knowledge and experience in engineering, drawing, and architecture, learning the molding and treatment techniques he would later become famous for.Both Charles E. and his wife Ray are still heavily celebrated on an international scale, especially for their work in the field of modern furniture. Both collaborated on numerous projects, earning them the AIA Twenty-five Year Award in 1977 and the prestigious Royal Gold Medal Award in 1979, a year after Charles passed away. Their work is still showcased at MoMA in New York, whilst in 1985 IDSA accredited Eames as "The Most Influential Designer of the 20th Century".
