LE CORBUSIER + JEANNERET. Wright, New York, 2016. Distributed by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 127 pp. 25 x 20 cm. ISBN 9780996371339 In English.
Publisher's description: Chandigarh was one of Le Corbusier's most important commissions and a rare opportunity to create "a total work of art" from master plan to furnishings with his cousin Pierre Jeanneret, who oversaw design and construction. As we've come to expect from Wright's past publications, the furnishings on auction are beautifully presented and thoughtfully contextualized within a description of this project -- Prime Minister Nehru's first Indian dream city -- amply illustrated with personal and construction photographs, drawings and brief historical notes. Illustrated are chairs, desks, bookcases, sofas, shelving from the court and administrative buildings by both men that capture the influence of Le Corbusier's design principles and the qualities of proportion, form, modernity and resourcefulness that Le Corbusier and Jeanneret applied to every aspect of Chandigarh from city plan to interiors. The commissioned pieces offered come out of noted private collections based in Chandigarh as well as Europe.
