Выставка посвящена творчеству французской женщины-архитектора и дизайнера Шарлотты Перриан, которое существенно повлияло на формирование тенденций современного интерьера в XX веке. Экспозиция представит архитектурные проекты, оригинальные предметы мебели, фотографии, сделанные Перриан и ее личные записные книжки.
In a life that spanned the twentieth century, Charlotte Perriand helped define the modernist interior and championed good design for the masses. One of the great furniture designers and architects, she was also a famous free spirit and a prolific collaborator whose work was often overshadowed by her male peers, such as Le Corbusier and Jean Prouvé. Featuring large-scale reconstructions of some of her most famous interiors, as well as original furniture, her photography and her personal notebooks, the exhibition sheds new light on Perriand’s creative process and her place in design history.
Curated in collaboration with the Perriand family and the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris, which staged a highly successful retrospective last year, this exhibition falls on the 25th anniversary of Charlotte Perriand’s last significant presentation in London, held at the Design Museum in 1996.
