From the archives: Pierre Jeanneret inspired Desk

This is a bit of a Throwback Thursday post! I was going through some of the thousands of images I have of previous projects, and this one always stops me in my tracks. We made this desk for a client a few years ago. It was inspired by a piece designed by the late, great Pierre Jeanneret, who collaborated a great deal with his cousin, Charles Edouard Jenneret (aka Le Corbusier).

This was a truly incredible piece; solid wood with a asymmetrical tapered front leg on one side, and a single drawer above an open compartment.

The back side features open compartments arranged as open shelves. I did a little research, and apparently these pieces were originally made for a student center in Chandigarh, India (crazy to think about these incredible pieces used by students!).

The client had an existing original chair that was refinished to match the desk.

 Together, they make a beautiful pair.
