Concept

In 1951 Nehru, the Indian Prime Minister, commissioned Le Corbusier to build a new state capital for the Punjab, in north west India. And so Chandigarh came into being, the modernist interpretation of the ideal city of Renaissance imaginings. Today, 60 years later, the design duo Doshi and Levien re-propose the design principles behind Le Corbusier’s project. A sofa and chair produced using a few, simple, essential components: architectural proportions suspended on slender pillars to which the designers have added a feminine sensuality, playing with graphics and reducing the thickness of the cushions.
