Charlotte Perriand l'oeuvre complète - Volume 3 1955 - 1968

SKU: 9782376660019

This third volume of the complete work (1956-1968) presents the work of Charlotte Perriand at the heart of the Trente Glorieuses, a period in which her status as an international designer is being confirmed. From 1956, Charlotte Perriand developed a sustained collaboration with the Steph Simon gallery, publisher in particular of her Nuage libraries. It strengthened its ties with Air France, fitted out agencies in Europe, Japan and Brazil and designed the first open-plan workspaces.

In Geneva, she devoted more than ten years to the renovation of the huge Palais des Nations, european ONU headquarters, to turn it into a modern tool at the service of thousands of diplomats and NGOs.

The book also illustrates her "art d’habiter" through achievements such as the residence of the Japanese ambassador in Paris, the Sahara house, a chalet in Méribel, an apartment in Rio de Janeiro, or even the interior of the Brazil Pavilion at the Cité Universitaire in Paris, with Le Corbusier.

Another country of choice for Charlotte Perriand after Japan, Brazil, where she went regularly from 1959 to 1970, occupied an important place in her universe. There, she forged friendships with Lúcio Costa, Oscar Niemeyer and the great figures of the progressive cultural milieu. In 1963, she began a mission on the development of crafts in the Nordeste, interrupted by the rebellion. Nearly 800 documents, most of them unpublished, trace a dozen years of creation regarding home furniture, fittings and architecture of this pioneer of design, and prefigured her work for the resort of Les Arcs in Savoie in the 70s and 80s.
