Une vie de création
Charlotte Perriand is one of those designers who changed the 20th century. Resolutely opposed to the traditonal School of the Arts Décoratifs, she was the pioneer of a new world of interior architecture, and her brand new approach to ways of living was open and flexible and always strived for absolute harmony between humans and their habitats.
An important part of France's 1930s avant-garde movement and a frequent collaborator of Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret, she designed several different series of revolutionnary pieces of furniture which later became renowned classics. Driven by her relentless curiosity, Charlotte Perriand's travels through different countries and cultures (for example Japan, Brazil and South East Asia) greatly influenced her work, notably the "Espace Thé" at UNESCO (1993).
