‘Everything changes so quickly, and what is state of the art one moment won’t be the next. Adaptation has to be ongoing – we have to know and accept this. These are transient times.’ — Charlotte Perriand
A pioneer in the world of architecture and interior design, the trailblazer series continues with our ode to the visionary Charlotte Perriand. Born in Paris in 1903, she was a vivacious feminist from the start. Paving her way through the male dominated era, she achieved early success with progressive thought and incredible focus.
Best known for her work under Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeannneret, she is responsible for some of the most renowned modernist pieces of the 20th century. Originally overlooked for her gender, she was hired on the spot after Corbusier saw her self designed work entitled 'Bar sous le toit' at Salon d'Automne.
With an innate appreciation, her genius comes from the marriage between art and design. A kindred spirit to the Aje woman, join us in celebrating the force du jour, the one and only Perriand.
