There is a blueprint after the original design by the Chandigarh office responsible for the 'Low Cost Furniture' program directed by Pierre Jeanneret which refers to this model as 'advocate's chair.'

The Senate, or Advocate's chair as it is also known, was designed for the Chandigarh Assembly. The main hall of the building is divided into three color-coded areas furnished with chairs in red, green or yellow leather with matching carpets (see p. 105). The walls of the rooms adjoining the Assembly hall are decorated with Le Corbusier's tapestries and also furnished with chairs of this model, some of which are covered in blue leather.
Color played an important role in the architecture of Le Corbusier, who was particularly interested in the study of color, culminating in the creation of the 1931 Salubra color catalogue. Pierre Jeanneret equally used primary colors for some of his own Chandigarh furniture designs, such as the architect's stools and desks from the College of Architecture.
