On the picture you see Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret on Chandigarh's Lake Shukna in a pedal boat designed by Jeanneret.

Yes, during 1950s, when these modernist masters built whole new capital of Punjab state in India, Chandigarh, they designed everything from the master plan to furniture, manhole covers or pedal boats for the lake.

From 20 September to 29 October 2011 you can see exhibition called Le Corbusier & Pierre Jeanneret: The Chandigarh Project in Zürich Anton Meier gallery. We love this pedal boat , as well as ascetic Standard lamp, bot designed by Pierre Jeanneret.

Some times ago we were asked by Komfort Magazine to make a special editorial for the inside covers of the 6th issue with the detective theme.

We made a graphic layout as a puzzle about 1950s folding chairs. The first page shows abstract symbols of the chairs and the last page presents what these abstract pictures of the folded chairs mean.

Here is the text to the editorial:

Developing the perfect construction of the folding chair is the detective work for any designer. When we have a look in unfolded as well as compound constructions of these three chairs from 1950s, we explore three different creative manners, which are on the track of the ideal formal and functional composition.
