A stunning and encyclopedic new monograph on Charlotte Perriand's career, exploring the interrelation of art, architecture, and design in the work of this legendary 20th century modernist, and her relationships and collaborations with her colleagues of the time including Léger, Miró, Picasso and Corbusier, among others. Accompanies the landmark exhibition that took place at the Louis Vuitton Foundation in Paris in 2019-2020 on the 20th anniversary of Perriand's death.
Her avant-garde vision was expressed in color, organic forms, and streamlined functionality - elements which are still at the heart of contemporary design today. Her furnishings were created from aluminum, rubber, chrome, leather, bamboo, and above all, wood. Perriand was an extraordinary personality who advocated for a revolution in the way we perceive the world, leading to new forms of cultural and artistic expression. She figured at the heart of a new order, a new relationship between the arts themselves—architecture, painting, sculpture, and other forms of artistic expression—as well as new relationships between the world’s cultures, not only that of Japan, but Indochina and Brazil.
Includes essays by her daughter, Pernette Perriand, and by Jacques Barsac, author of the Charlotte Perriand Catalogue Raisonné. Beautifully printed in Italy. Truly, grab a copy before it is gone. Item #1183.
