Our Pierre Jeanneret design chair stays true to the 1950s chairs in as many ways possible. Perhaps most immediately noticeable is our use of solid durable teak and square-woven rattan. Our skilled craftspeople invest a tremendous amount of energy and time into using these traditional techniques to make the high quality chair that we proudly present to you today.
Since its inception in the 1950s, Pierre Jeanneret’s Chandigarh office chair has experienced fluctuating levels of popularity. In the past twenty years however, it has ascended to iconic status, prompting multiple re-editions. At Object Embassy we aspire to stay true to the original design by using the same traditional materials and production techniques. In the first in our series of blog posts, we’d also like to retell the story of the creator as we believe this is inseparable from the design.
