Charlotte Perriand was born in Paris in 1903 and later studied at the Union Central des Arts Décoratifs. Inspired by Le Corbusier's architectural treatises, she persuaded him to let her work for him in 1927. Their tasks were the production of prototypes and public presentations of the studio's projects. Together with Pierre Jeanneret, Perriand developed a series of tubular steel seats that were and are - then as now - a symbol of the car age.
In 1940 he traveled to Japan as an official consultant for industrial design, but was stranded in Vietnam from 1942 to 1946 after Japan went to war. Perriand used his time in exile to learn weaving techniques and woodworking. When he returned to France, he wanted to incorporate straw and bamboo into a modern design.
In France, Perriand continued to work with Le Corbusier and Prouvé. She has made a significant contribution to the Le Corbusier Housing Design Unit in Marseille. Until her death in 1999, Perriand remained an influential figure in the modern era.
Please note: The most attractive quality of a vintage item is its past. With this understanding, I hope that you will enjoy the character and history of the treasure you have chosen. I sell items that stand out to me and strive for fair and reasonable prices. I also try to describe and photograph objects thoroughly and honestly. Antiques and vintage items show signs of age such as skates, crazy people, colors, chips, scratches and cracks. Therefore, please use the zoom function to check the photos, read the descriptions and request before verification so that you are most satisfied with your purchase.
Shipping: All packages are shipped from Germany. I would love to send you your love wherever you are, and I would prefer to combine transportation with two or more items. I believe in greening, so I use recycled materials whenever possible. I will finish your purchase with a lot of love to make sure it reaches the described state.
