Charlotte Perriand : an Art of living

Perriand's career embraced Art Deco, machine-age modernism, the organic rusticity of the 1930s, serially produced metal and wood furniture in the '50s and '60s, and plastic and prefabricated units in the '70s. This volume contains texts by leading scholars covering many facets of her work and life.
