Charlotte Perriand

Charlotte Perriand was born in Paris in 1903, and her noteworthy career and invaluable contribution to the fields of architecture and furniture design began in 1927 with her 10-year working relationship with Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret as Head of Interior Design in their studio. During the trio’s period of collaboration, a number of iconic furniture pieces were conceived, including the 1928 “chair with a swinging back”, also known as LC1, the “Fauteuil Grand Confort” LC2, and the LC4 chaise longue, pieces still produced today by the Italian brand Cassina.

Through her works, Charlotte Perriand promoted a profound renewal of aesthetic values.

“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
Following a period in Japan Perriand’s work shifted focus. The cultural influence can be observed in her designs in the selection of traditional natural materials including bamboo and wood, and the pieces themselves, which aesthetically were completely different from her previous work with Le Corbusier. Other subsequently important interior collaborations included the Unité d’Habitation in Marseille and Les Arcs in Savoie demonstrating her ever-experimental approach to design and the value and uniqueness of Perriand’s creativity.
