Pierre Jeanneret (1896-1967) was a Swiss-French architect, cousin of the famous Le Corbusier and a long-time collaborator of his studio. He began to collaborate with him immediately after the end of his studies and together they went through the fruitful period of the birth of the Modern Movement and the creation of some iconic buildings, such as the famous Ville Savoye in Poissy. He had a particularly important role in the design of the furniture signed by the studio, designed in collaboration with Le Corbusier himself and with an equally brilliant young assistant: Charlotte Perriand. These furnishings have been re-edited by Cassina since the 1960s, forming its famous LC collection. After the Second World War he started to work on his own and had the opportunity to collaborate with another great name in French design such as Jean Prouvé. However, it was always thanks to his cousin that he obtained the most important assignment of his life: he supervised the construction of the urban plan of the city of Chandigarh, which involved the construction from scratch of many buildings and furnishings, in search of a sort of "ideal city" . To follow this project closely, he moved to India and spent 15 years there, almost until his death.
