Congratulating Dr. Philippe Cohen, Fabien Naudan, Emmanuel Berard and everyone at the French auction house Artcurial for the opening a new representation in Tel Aviv, which comes to create events and craft ties with clients and cultural institutions in the region. The first event by the auction house opens on October 2nd, a six-day selling exhibition entitled “Le Corbusier & Pierre Jeanneret: Chandigarh in Tel Aviv. I love the title, which marks the similarities between the Indian and the Israeli towns, both modernist utopias, which were created from scratch four decades apart. On show are furniture pieces which Pierre Jeanneret created for the public buildings of the first planned city in post-independence India, designed by his cousin Le Corbusier and built in 1947. With Chandigarh, the new capital of the Indian state of Punjab, Le Corbusier was given the opportunity to create his urban dream. The architectural furniture was recently rediscovered by dealers and collectors worldwide, and the market was formulated at Artcurial. This pioneering scene will enable Israelis to seriously start collecting design.
