Charlotte Perriand

Charlotte Perriand would have to be one of the most significant female designers in the modern movement. It was not until her death in 1999 that she was recognised as one of the very few women of her time to have succeeded in a male domain.

In her youth she was honoured by a personal invitation to work with Le Corbusier in his studios.

Together with Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret she worked to produce the tubular designs she’s known for today. She was fascinated with the age of machines and developed designs in glass and metal and soon after her return from Vietnam and Japan, she continued to work in new materials such as bamboo developing oriental features such as sliding screens.
The exhibition at the Pompidou Centre covers a range of topics including her years with Le Corbusier’s studio, her time in Japan, the ski resorts of les arcs, the unesco tea house in 1993 and more.
