A celebration of harmony at the Charlotte Perriand exhibition
Charlotte Perriand designed countless pieces of furniture and other projects, and in doing so gave birth to a new way of life. From the beginning of the 30s, this passionate designer strove to revolutionise the furniture of her time, using all kinds of industrial materials such as metal tubes. Her goal was to create furniture with an aesthetic that was stripped-down but never austere, which everyone could use and adapt to their own living environment. The exhibition traces the pioneering designer’s rich history and travels around the world, highlights her various collaborations with Le Corbusier but, above all, demonstrates her originality and profound modernity.
