ADDRESS161 NE 40th St. Suite 100 Berluti and Laffanour Galerie Downtown present the limited edition Pierre Jeanneret pieces upholstered by Berluti from December 2- 8, 2019, in the Miami Design District.Berluti together with Laffanour Galerie Downtown present a small exclusive series of 17 original Pierre Jeanneret pieces.
Created by the Swiss Architect in the 1950s, to furnish Chandigarh’s Capitol Complex in India, these original pieces have been restored to conservation standards and upholstered with Berluti’s emblematic Venezia leather.
Berluti’s Creative Director Kris Van Assche has developed an entirely new palette of patinas for the series. Based partly on the two-colour collections Le Corbusier created in 1931 and 1959, as well the rich colours hefound in the natural light, architecture, landscape, and foliage on a recent trip to Chandigarh. This hand-applied patina enhances the gentle curves of the soft padding.
The series will be presented in a dedicated showroom in the Miami Design District from December 2-8, 2019. The concept of this dedicated space will evoke the iconic architecture of Chandigarh, and the delicate art ofBerluti’s Patina process, the result of many combined techniques for colouring through the application of essential oils, pigments and dyes.
Sunday, December 8th: 12pm – 6pm
