95€
The second volume in a planned four-part series, this lavish book covers the years between 1940 and 1941. It began in 1953, Perriand traveled extensively in Japan by invitation of the Japanese government with whom she worked as an advisor to modernise the country’s design. During this period, she took many photographs documenting traditional Japanese culture, many of which are published here for the first time.

From 1952 to 1955, a fruitful collaboration with the Ateliers Jean Prouvé provided for the first time the technical means for Perriand to mass-produce her designs while also further improving Prouvé’s own work both aesthetically and practically. A number of emblematic masterpieces came about as a result of this collaboration, including the Tunisian and Mexican dormitories at the Cité internationale universitaire de Paris. Covering these important moments and many others, including Perriand’s work in Vietnam, in founding the Formes Utiles movement, and in further collaborations with Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret, Charlotte Perriand continues the three-volume exploration of this key figure, complete with annotations and a bibliography for further research.

The sixty pages of her famous article "L'art d'habiter" published in the review Techniques et Architecture in 1950, which explains her thought and approach as an interior architect and designer, are reproduced in extenso.
