The Pierre Jeanneret 051 Capitol Upholstered Armchair is one of the best-known models from the building in Chandigarh that gave the chair its name as a staple in the mid-century modern design. Like the original, all the chair parts are made of solid wood in our contemporary reproduction. The woven backrest and upholstered seat, stretched across a wooden frame, are iconic elements that make the chair a timeless and trendy signature piece.
