Charlotte Perriand, l'oeuvre complète - Volume 1 1903-1940

SKU: 9782915542608

For seven decades, Charlotte Perriand (1903-1999) helped shape the world with her inventions, leaving behind a trail of images, objects, places and buildings, so many records of a work that appears now in full force. This first volume of the complete work offers a detailed analysis of her first years of creation, very fertile, as much in the field of design as of architecture or photography. Based largely on the archives kept by the artist's family in her Parisian studio, it sheds light on her sources, environment, and years of apprenticeship at the school of the Union centrale des arts décoratifs, as well as her meeting and her association with Pierre Jeanneret and Le Corbusier, in 1928, which will give birth to emblematic pieces of furniture such as the Chaise longue basculante (1928), and to her first arrangements (the villa Savoye, the villa Church, Villa Martínez de Hoz). It also makes us discover her militant commitment, which led her to travel to Moscow, then to think about a vernacular architecture at the service of the people, which will lead in particular, in the 30s, to the Maison au bord de l'eau (1934 ), a holiday center (1935), or her first mountain architectures. The 30s were also those of the creation of the UAM, of which she was one of the founding members alongside Robert Mallet-Stevens, but also of her ideological break with Le Corbusier, which would lead her to the 'Edge of the Second World War, to go it alone.
