The Furniture of Charlotte Perriand
1 November 2018 - 12 January. Venus Over Manhattan. New York
The gallery Venus Over Manhattan is presenting an exhibition dedicated to French designer Charlotte Perriand, one of the most famous interior architect of the 20th century, who led the design of all the interiors and furnishings of Le Corbusier’s projects and helped shape the Modernist movement.
Nearly 50 creations and projects are on display in the gallery, including a kitchen made for Le Corbusier’s Unité d’Habitation in Marseille, a room designed for a student residence in Paris, a six-sided table Perriand created in the late 1930s for her Montparnasse apartment, and a tubular steel chair made in partnership with Le Corbusier. It will be the larger ever exhibition of Perriand’s work in the United States.
