or Call to Order

The Commit­tee Chair becomes part of the Hommage à Pierre Jean­neret tribute collec­tion for Cassina. It was initially designed in the 1950s to furnish the spaces of grand polit­i­cal and public build­ings in the Indian city of Chandi­garh, the capital of Punjab. The design features restrained, elegant lines and is recog­niz­able by the iconic upside-down V‑shaped lateral supports. For a more versa­tile fit in the home and dining rooms, the Commit­tee Chair is avail­able in a new inter­pre­ta­tion without armrests and its orig­i­nal version with armrests. 

The seat struc­ture, avail­able in the historic teak version and natural oak, oak stained black, or dark walnut stained, blends harmo­niously with the soft uphol­stered parts for comfort­able, supported seating. Avail­able in fabric or leather, the uphol­stery is remov­able to facil­i­tate the replace­ment of the mate­r­ial around the armrests. Each piece in the collec­tion is the utmost expres­sion of high quality and excel­lence that distin­guishes Cassina products.

Pierre Jeanneret

Switzerland (1896–1967)

Born in Geneva in 1896, Pierre Jeanneret was a forward-thinking modernist who spent much of his career working in collaboration with his cousin, Le Corbusier. Jeanneret is known for his architecture, urban planning, and furniture designs. After spending 1916-1918 in the Swiss Army and studying at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Geneva, he opened an architecture practice with Le Corbusier in 1922. Together they designed architectural spaces and furniture pieces for over 20 years. Their collaboration took a hiatus when Jeanneret joined the French Resistance and Le Corbusier did not. One of their largest collaboration pieces is urban planning and architecture for the city of Chandigarh, India. The highlight of which is his design of 14 different types of mass housing for the city. His furniture design pieces are minimalist in style, and his most noted is a chair that requires no fasteners.
