FEATURED IMAGE

Le Corbusier & Pierre Jeanneret: Chandigarh, India

Pierre Jeanneret's 1955-56 office chair is reproduced from Le Corbusier & Pierre Jeanneret: Chandigarh, India, a featured title in our pop up bookstore, ARTBOOK @ SWISS INSTITUTE, curated through November to support and enhance Fin de Siècle, architect Andreas Angelidakis' Ionesco-inspired exhibition of modern and contemporary chair design. "For Le Corbusier planning a new city meant a global approach, so the need to design the furniture for Chandigarh's public buildings was self-evident. The modernity, purity and consistency of the whole had to be perceptible. For this enormous project, he called in his cousin Pierre Jeanneret, who shared his convictions and had his full confidence."

Product Design Bookshelf

Product Design BookshelfEmily Pilloton, author of Design Revolution, defines design as “problem-solving with grace and foresight.” No discipline is free from design criteria: the manufactured objects that are the building blocks of our environment can be badly designed, indifferently designed or designed “with grace and foresight.” Below is a selection of our finest books on product, ranging from monographs on individual designers and companies to surveys of design genres such as watch and chair design.
