Charlotte Perriand (1903 - 1999), was a French architect and designer.
Perriand became known at 24 years of age with Bar Under the Roof - furniture made out of chromed steel and anodized aluminium. This was presented at the Salon d'Automne of 1927 and was acclaimed by the critics. Shortly afterward, she was invited to begin a collaboration with Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret, which would last nearly ten years. She exhibited with them in the Salon d'Automne of 1929, The Equipment of Habitation: Racks, Seats, Tables . This furniture would be produced by Thonet and more recently by Cassina.
From 1940, onwards, her style was strongly influenced by a long stay in the Far East, and in particular in Japan from 1940 to 1942. Charlotte Perriand took part in the design of the ski resorts of Les Arcs in Savoie, at the same time making her architecture and installations of interiors. Since March 2004, Cassina produces the furniture of Charlotte Perriand.
