Living with Charlotte Perriand presents a catalog of the great designer's work, object by object. Her chairs, tables and bookshelves in all their different iterations are seen here both up close and "at home," as installed in the living spaces of collectors. Photographs of both historical and contemporary settings show how Perriand's furniture stands the test of time and taste. Essays by François Laffanour and Cynthia Fleury provide a deeper insight into Perriand's work and retrace her life and collaboration with other great artists, designers and architects of her time, such as Le Corbusier and Jean Prouvé. Additionally, quotes from Perriand and the collectors who live with her designs are interpersed throughout the book.
Charlotte Perriand (1903-99) was a French architect and designer known for the playful mix of materials and styles in her furniture. In her article "L'Art de Vivre" (1981) she states, "The extension of the art of dwelling is the art of living--living in harmony with man's deepest drives and with his adopted or fabricated environment."
