It is the fate of history that architect and furniture designer Pierre Jeanneret will be best remembered for his collaborations with his famous cousin, Charles-Édouard Jeanneret-Gris (aka, Le Corbusier).
The two began their partnership in 1922 with the Villa Besnus outside Paris.
This famous familial duo went on to create some of the most esteemed icons of midcentury modernism, including the Villa Savoye in Poissy, France, and the Grand Modele seating collection.
During his partnership with Corbusier, Jeanneret also worked extensively with Charlotte Perriand, and they joined forces with Jean Prouvé in 1940 to research the potential of prefabricated housing.
Then came World War II, creating a shortage of materials – and a rift between Jeanneret and Corbusier that would last 10 years.
Jeanneret, sympathizing with the Communists, joined the French resistance, while Corbusier’s authoritarian leanings led him to elicit work from the Vichy Government and Italian Fascists.
