Charlotte Perriand, a Free Spirit

Charlotte Perriand, a Free Spirit

She is the female figure of XXth century French design who needs no introduction. Charlotte Perriand inspires and generates excitement among people. Last year, the exhibition Charlotte Perriand: A New World at the Louis Vuitton Foundation attracted nearly 476,000 visitors – both experts and lay people alike. It was a huge retrospective that showcased her work as a designer, architect and photographer too! For this free spirit started creating avant-garde works from the moment she left school in 1925. Modernist designs with minimalist lines and architectural projects redefining the environment within society. She was passionate about raw materials such as wood – like her Méribel stool seen at Emmanuel de Bayser or the Rio table at Samantha Hauvette – and metal too. She was also fascinated by the Japanese imagination – due to her trip to Tokyo in 1940 – and she innovated and established herself as one of the pioneers of her generation. Appealing to design enthusiasts of the past as well as the present! A modern vision of architecture and design devoid of embellishment, advocating a purity of detail that is equally valued by our art director, Constance Gennari. For her voluptuous curves on the one hand and for her love of simplicity on the other. It is this rich diversity that we celebrate in our collections at The Socialite Family, from the sleek silhouette of our Carlotta table – meaning “Charlotte” in Italian – to the pale blue hue of our n°002 painting in collaboration with Atelier Mériguet-Carrère. A tribute that we humbly try to pay to this great lady, whose work we never cease to admire.
