Pierre JEANNERET. Collapsible work table in solid teak and solid cedar. Slightly tilted rectangular top in cedar, for affixing drawing paper (teak would be too hard). Double "X" type leg assembly connected by four fixed rails, plus one central one removable by two teak keys at the side.
Cedar, a soft, local wood, made it possible to affix plans to the table using tacks or staples, unlike teak, a very dense wood that is too hard for that purpose.
Provenance: College of Architecture in Chandigarh.
