Pierre Jeanneret.

Pierre Jeanneret.

No problem, coveralls.

A little emotional.

A really good turtleneck.

I'm moved by that, I long for it.

Combat uniform in modern daily life.


This is Kinoshita from cliché.

If you are visiting our store, you may have seen it.

"Pierre Jeanneret" is placed like the interior of the store.

In fact, everything is for sale.

It is rarely seen at irregular pop-ups or events at the museum,

We have them on hand at all times, so you can view them and purchase them at any time.

By the way, it wasn't a major model, it was Jeanneret!

It's an interesting lineup, so

I think you will be able to see all of them very often.

- Pierre Jeanneret -

Architect " Pierre Jeanneret " was born in Geneva, Switzerland in 1896. In 1921, after graduating from the Geneva School of Fine Arts, he moved to Paris and opened a studio with his cousin Edouard Jeanneret (=Le Corbusier).

Together, they led the design industry in the 20s and 30s, and later designed buildings in various cities that represented the 20th century. However, during World War II, differences of opinion arose with Corbusier, and the partnership ended. I will tell you.

However, in 1955, they reunited and began designing a new city in India, Chandigarh.

At the time, thousands of pieces of furniture needed to be made in a short period of time, so they used teak wood, which had been available in India for a long time, and adopted traditional local handicraft techniques. He designed the product so that as many local people as possible could be involved in its production, regardless of equipment.

However, thousands of pieces of furniture were often made in factories that were not fully supervised by them. It does not adhere to the standards of the blueprint and is considered a "similar design".

Only items made under the supervision of Jeanneret's design office can be called originals, and the items available at cliché are, of course, originals.

Even today, there is a project called Project Chandigarh, which started in 2015 by the Indian workshop "Phantom Hands" to reproduce a series of furniture designed for the Chandigarh urban planning project. The will continues to be passed down locally in India.

Many of these pieces of furniture have been around for decades, so many of them are becoming obsolete. Under such circumstances, items in good condition are traded at high prices and are extremely difficult to obtain.

In a sense, it's considered an asset, so even if you keep it, the market price may rise before you know it.

Now, let me introduce the lineup.

All prices are listed on ASK, so please inquire directly at the store.

"Demountable Low Chair"

Chandigarh furniture, as mentioned above, is characterized by typical shapes such as X, V, D, and U.

This type of chair is also a common type if it has V-legs, but it is an unusual type.

All types of rattan are newly reupholstered in India, so you can rest assured that they are in good condition.

"Kangaroo Chair 2-Seater"

The iconic kangaroo chair.

Apparently there aren't many that have 2 seats.

Just by placing it, it creates an overwhelming presence.

"Rattan Bridge Ottoman"

It's a so-called ottoman, but it can also be used as a stool.

It is also unique in that it can be used for a wide variety of purposes, including storing books.

It is said that it was probably used in an ordinary household in Chandigarh.

"Rattan Laundry Box"

Many people have probably seen the laundry box.

It is one of the earliest models, and despite its age, it is in excellent condition.

You may be able to feel the scent of those days.

It is also said that some people used it not only as a laundry box, but also as a side table with a glass plate on top.

Can also be used simply to store clothes.

"Sewing Stool"

It looks like a chair.

But it's not a regular chair, it's a sewing machine chair.

At that time, the sewing machine had a system that required you to step on it,

It has a sloped design that makes it easy to step on.

"Iron Stool & Iron Low Stool"

It is rare among Jeanneret that the image of rattan comes to mind.

A round chair that combines wood and iron legs.

Two legs are available, but both have different heights.

Apparently it was used at a university in India.

"Dining Chair Cushion "BROWN""

dining chair.

It seems that there are also rattan and wood ones in the same shape,

The cushion type seems to have very little distribution in Japan.

It was also available in black, but I chose it because I was drawn to the brown atmosphere.

"V leg Student Desk"

A study desk that can be used with the dining chair mentioned earlier.

It is said to be wide and used in schools in Chandigarh.

We have a lineup like this.

The layout of the store is a little familiar, but if you are interested, please feel free to ask.

Behind the cashier counter, there is a catalog along with a photobook of Kyon Fuka and Minami Tanaka. There are many different models, so if you are interested in one of them, we may be able to offer one for you.

Just having it in the store creates a great atmosphere, so I would like to keep it as part of the layout.

I'm really looking forward to seeing it in someone's hands.
