Description:

The Pierre Jeanneret Kangaroo Chair was designed in 1950 by Pierre Jeanneret. He 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 lounge chair inspired by the mid-century modern design of Chandigarh. What’s special about 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

Pierre Jeanneret (1896 – 1967)

It is destined that furniture designer and architect Pierre Jeanneret will be best remembered for his partnership with his famous cousin, Charles-Édouard Jeanneret-Gris (also known as, Le Corbusier). In 1922, the two began their partnership with the Villa Besnus outside Paris. This acclaimed familial duo went on to create some of the most revered icons of midcentury modernism, including the Villa Savoye in Poissy, France, and the Grand Modele seating collection.During his partnership with Corbusier, Jeanneret also worked extensively with Charlotte Perriand, and they joined forces with Jean Prouvé in 1940 to research the potential of prefabricated housing. Then came World War II, creating a shortage of materials – and a rift between Jeanneret and Corbusier that would last 10 years. Jeanneret, sympathizing with the Communists, joined the French resistance, while Corbusier’s authoritarian leanings led him to elicit work from the Vichy Government and Italian Fascists.In 1950, after the war, Corbusier once again made a request to his cousin, this time for a project on a much greater scale: designing the capital of Punjab, the city of Chandigarh, India. Jeanneret agreed, and Chandigarh – the first outlined city in India – became his home for fifteen years. Corbusier devised the high-level aspects of the design, but it was Jeanneret who executed the plans. Gandhi Bhawan, his famous building on the campus of Punjab University, represents a lotus flower floating on the water.Jeanneret went on to become a respected figure in Indian architecture. He left his second home in poor health in 1965 to return to France, where he passed away in 1967.
