A Building hero

While I was researching for my Corbusier lecture I came across some of the furniture design that was actually designed by Corbusier's cousin Pierre Jeanneret-the unsung hero of Corbusier's career. This desk is really elegant and almost more Corb than Corb. Read the Gallerie Patrick Sequin bio of Jeanneret and you find out that when Corb goes to India to build the city Chandigarh it is Jeanneret who stays for years after to realize the epic modern city.
