“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.
