Milan Design Week: Visiting Chandigarh, Pierre Jeanneret and Cassina…

For Cassina to explore Jeanneret’s designs further says everything about the passion the Cassina Research and Development Centre puts into every project. Their interest in the heritage of the furniture Jeanneret designed for the Capitol Complex in Chandigarh arose from the Cassina’s need to complete its knowledge of the work of the three greats of Modernism: Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand

Le Corbusier’s Renovated Private Apartment in Paris

The project was carried out by a multidisciplinary team including architecture practice François Chatillon, which specialises in revamping 20th-century buildings, and paint restorer Marie-Odile Hubert, who ensured that walls were recoloured in hues as close as possible to Le Corbusier’s original palette.
Italian furniture brand Cassina were also charged with restoring the apartment’s furniture and the cow hide rug that features in the sitting area next to a black leather edition of Le Corbusier’s signature LC2 lounge chair.

The Paris apartment within the Immeuble Molitor, where Le Corbusier lived for over three decades, has reopened its doors to the public, following two years of restoration works led by the Fondation Le Corbusier.

The apartment is located along rue Nungesser-et-Coli in Paris’ 16th arrondissement, and was home to Le Corbusier, along with his wife Yvonne, housekeeper and pet dog Pinceau, between 1934 and 1965.
