Pierre Jeanneret 'Standard Lamp' PJ-100101 in solid teak - 1955
DESCRIPTIONJeanneret, chandigarh, teak lamp, ca 1955, in original condition.
Lamp with two lights, known as "Standard Lamp" in solid teak, with two reflectors in embossed sheet aluminium, one lacquered black and the other red. Tapered central axis, intersecting with an arm at the top supporting the two dome-shaped lights at either and, facing in opposite directions. Square base supported by two tick slats acting as legs. Small decentred rectangular table in teak.
Provenance and certificates available. Another interesting and nowadays relevant fact about these and other chandigarh chairs is that all pieces were made from the trees which were logged because of the city built, so an early adaptation of ecological thinking. We have another Standard Lamp available with a yellow and red shade.
