“The extension of the art of dwelling is the art of living,”
In celebration of Charlotte Perriand’s birthday on October 24, 1903, we would like to celebrate one of the modern masters of the twentieth century. Over her prolific career spanning decades, her designs are anchored in our everyday lives. Charlotte Perriand’s works are included in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Design Museum in London, and the Centre Georges Pompidou, to name only a few.
At the beginning of the twentieth century, her creations animated the fundamental substance of daily life with new aesthetic values.
“It wasn’t merely a question of designing and dreaming, but of showing and experimenting,” wrote Perriand.
Her talent and intuition in the discovery and use of new materials pushed the boundaries of design at the time.
We would like to pay homage to her life and everlasting impact on design. Here at Cassina Los Angeles, we are honored to be able to experience her designs that transcend cultural trends.
Keeping her spirit alive with the continuing reintroduction of licensed pieces through the Cassina I Maestri collection, she remains forever present.
“Everything changes so quickly, and what is state of the art one moment won’t be the next. Adaptation has to be ongoing—we have to know and accept this. These are transient times.” —Charlotte Perriand
