Charlotte Perriand


With the recent shift towards a mixture of industrial modernism in design and interiors Charlotte Perriand continues to be a influential furniture designer with collectors and designers alike.


Charlotte Perriand

Architect + Furniture Designer (1903-1999)

 


When the 24 year old Charlotte Perriand strode into Le Corbusier’s studio at 35 rue de Sèvres, Paris in 1927, and asked him to hire her as a furniture designer, his response was terse. “We don’t embroider cushions here,” he replied and showed her the door. A few months later Le Corbusier apologised. After being taken by his cousin Pierre Jeanneret to see the glacial Bar sous le Toît, or rooftop bar that Perriand had created in glass, steel and aluminium, for the Salon D’Automne exhibition in Paris, Le Corbusier invited her to join his studio.

Sticking it to Le Corbusier, my kind of woman.

Designer gone wild. 


Who's got two thumbs and is a design icon?


Yeah. This lady.

Yummy.


This leather sling chair is an incredible example of mixing tubular chrome and warm leather. Designed by Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand in 1928 it is a classic piece that still remains completely contemporary.

These incredible Charlotte Perriand Leather Bar Stools come in assorted sizes and states of wear and are therefore priced individually. Just as amazing as the stacking chair design!
