Upon India's independence, Jawaharlal Nehru, the nation's first Prime Minister, dreamed of "a new town, symbolic of the freedom of India .... an expression of the nation's faith in the future." Chandigarh, meaning "fortress of Chandi," the Indian goddess of power, is the incarnation of Nehru's vision. The construction of this municipality was given to Le Corbusier, while his cousin Pierre Jeanneret (1896-1967) supervised the manufacture of numerous articles of furniture for public and private buildings, using wood from the forest-clearing necessitated by the vast undertaking.
This catalogue raisonné gathers all the pieces of furniture created by Pierre Jeanneret for the city of Chandigarh.
