Milan Design Week: Visiting Chandigarh, Pierre Jeanneret and Cassina…
Pierre Jeanneret’s furniture has been an important fixture of the Cassina collection for many years, part of the ranges he developed in collaboration with his cousin Le Corbusier and designer Charlotte Perriand. 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

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.
