In the 1950s, Pierre Jeanneret (1896 - 1967) collaborated with Le Corbusier on several architectural projects in India. They were instrumental in designing the city of Chandigarh, which became one of their most iconic works. Chandigarh is the capital of the Indian states of Punjab and Haryana and is considered a modernist masterpiece of urban planning and architecture

Jeanneret was responsible for many of the city's public buildings, urban layouts, and furniture designs. His contributions to the furniture designs in Chandigarh have become highly sought after and are considered collector's items today. His furniture designs often used local materials and traditional craftsmanship techniques, blending them with modernist aesthetics
