Furniture Design

Jeanneret, Pierre (1896 - 1967)

A close collaborator and cousin of Le Corbusier, the Swiss designer's heritage to modernist design and architecture is often neglected. His contribution in the use of metal and the industrialization of Le Corbusier's designs was yet fundamental. He also worked with Charlotte Perriand, designing furniture and supervised the iconic project of Chandigarh where he mingled Indian building tradition and modernist techniques.
