Charlotte Perriand : an art of living by Charlotte Perriand ( Book )
4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Charlotte Perriand (1903-1999) was one of the most innovative furniture and interior designers of the twentieth century. Although her work has long been recognized by furniture historians and Le Corbusier specialists, Perriand's pioneering role has only recently become more widely appreciated. Her long career embraced much of the history of modern design in France, including Art Deco, machine-age modernism, the organic rusticity of the 1930s and 1940s, serially produced metal and wood furniture of the 1950s and 1960s, and plastic and prefabricated bathroom and kitchen units of the 1970s. Perriand collaborated with Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret on the creation of their famous "LC" furniture and was responsible for the design of many of their major interiors. After 1938, she also worked frequently with Jean Prouve, developing a series of innovative modular storage units and low-cost residential furnishings. Apart from these collaborations, Perriand had her own practice, which encompassed a wide range of projects and countries, from a chaise lounge to a ski resort, from France to Japan, Vietnam, Congo, and Brazil." "Many of Perriand's pieces are now seen as classics of modern furniture. However, she saw her designs not merely as elegant objects but as part of a larger social program to extend the pleasures of modern life (what she called "l'art de vivre") to working-and middle-class people. Perriand sought to create a vibrant, accessible art that rejected bourgeois conventions while humanizing everyday environments. Her designs and her career also exemplify a radical rethinking of gender roles." "Charlotte Perriand: An Art of Living is the first book in English on this important figure in the history of twentieth-century design. Mary McLeod has assembled a collection of essays that elucidate Perriand's rich, diverse career and the ways in which it intersects with contemporary cultural currents, political movements, and changing social and economic conditions."--BOOK JACKET

The acclaimed French designer Charlotte Perriand (1903-1999) worked in the studio of Le Corbusier in the late 1920s together with Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret. The famous Corbusier furniture pieces are the result of this unique collaboration. A facsimile reproduction of Charlotte Perriand's 140 page Livre de Bord, her sketchbook during the years 1927-1933, is the centrepiece of this publication. Arthur Ruegg's introductory essay brings to life in text and image those pioneering years. His precise and detailed commentaries inspire an appreciation and understanding of the richness of each drawing. A 16 page dossier of illustrations recreates the famous 1929 Salon d'Automne and the original furnishings of Villa Church. Arthur Ruegg, Professor for Architecture and Construction at the ETH in Zurich, is the leading expert on Le Corbusier's interior design, furniture and colour theory
