Pierre Jeanneret

Swiss, 1896 - 1967
Pierre Jeanneret was a Swiss architect and designer, born on March 22, 1896, in Geneva, Switzerland, and passed away on December 4, 1967, in New Delhi, India. He was the cousin of renowned architect Le Corbusier, and the two worked together on a number of important architectural projects.
Jeanneret began his career as an architect in Switzerland, where he designed a number of important buildings in the International Style, including the Pavillon Suisse at the Cité Universitaire in Paris. In the 1920s, he began collaborating with Le Corbusier, and the two developed a close working relationship that would last for many years.
Jeanneret is perhaps best known for his furniture designs, which were created in collaboration with Le Corbusier and Charlotte Perriand. Together, they developed a range of modernist furniture designs that were characterized by their simplicity, functionality, and industrial aesthetic. The most famous of these designs is the LC4 Chaise Longue, which is still in production today.
Jeanneret also worked on a number of important architectural projects throughout his career, including the design of the city of Chandigarh in India, which was commissioned by the Indian government in the 1950s. He spent many years in India, where he worked on a range of projects and became an important figure in the development of modern architecture in the country.
Today, Jeanneret's furniture designs are highly sought after by collectors and design enthusiasts around the world, and his work continues to be influential in the fields of architecture and design.
