Overview

The Capitol Complex Armchair by Pierre Jeanneret for Cassina is a reissue of the classic chair that was designed for the interior spaces of the Chandigarh Capitol Complex designed by architect Le Corbusier in 1951.

A Unesco World Heritage Site in India, the Chandigarh Capitol Complex has received accolades for its celebration of an independent nation open to modernity. Chandigarh was one of India’s first planned cities and was Le Corbusier’s largest project. Its three buildings—the Palace of Assembly, the Secretariat Building, and the High Court—make up the core of the master complex.

Modern and luxurious, the armchair is an innovative piece, perfectly designed for home or office. With a “V” shaped support structure, the only exposed pieces of wood are the supports, the crossbars, and the external joints between the arms and the backrest. The cylindrical shape of the armrests along with the distinct seat and back cushions offer an immediate sense of comfort without abandoning elegance and simplicity.

Materials

  • Solid oak (natural or stained black) or Burmese teak frame
  • Black plastic glides on the feet
  • Polyurethane foam padding in varying density
  • Fabric or leather upholstery
