MAIL by NHO delivers news and views tailored to those who share our value of design. Published to a gentle schedule, you’ll only hear from us when we have something of note to share.
We are fascinated by the work of Charlotte Perriand, so we were more than a little jealous to discover Londoners will enjoy a retrospective exhibition of her work at the Design Museum this summer. Oh to travel once more!
Charlotte Perriand: The Modern Life celebrates the style and spirit of the designer, whose pioneering interiors and furniture designs shaped the 20th century. The exhibition invites visitors to step inside recreations of Perriand’s most famous interiors, enjoy furniture pieces up close – such as the iconic Chaise Longue Basculante (pictured), and take a glimpse of Perriand’s sketches, photographs, scrapbooks and prototypes, offering new insight into her unique creative process.
Charlotte Perriand: The Modern Life opens Saturday 19 June 2021 – 05 September 2021.
