Le monde nouveau de Charlotte Perriand (Fondation Louis Vuitton)
Jacques Barsac, Sébastien Cherruet
Fondation Louis Vuitton & Gallimard, 2019
“There is a whole new world that interests us at the highest point, because finally the Business of Architecture is working for the man.” (Charlotte Perriand, letter to Pierre Jeanneret, 1936)
What is this “new world” imagined by architect and designer Charlotte Perriand (1903-1999)? How does she rethink our relationship to nature and the place given to art in everyday life? The answers given by this pioneer of modernity seem to us today astonishingly topical.
Published on the occasion of the important retrospective that the Louis Vuitton Foundation dedicates to Charlotte Perriand and her links with the artists and architects of her time, this book offers a new reading of a work marked by commitment and freedom.
Under the direction of Sébastien Cherruet and Jacques Barsac, this catalog, bringing together contributions by French and foreign authors in a chronological and thematic approach, invites to a journey in creation over the twentieth century. IN FRENCH! ALSO AVAILABLE IN ENGLISH – SEE OUR WEBSITE
