Enter the world of Charlotte Perriand, whose pioneering designs shaped the 20th century. Her modern ideas can be found in the way we live today, from the use of materials to her belief that good design is for everyone. 

Step inside recreations of some of her most famous interiors, including the apartment designed for the Salon d’Automne in 1929, and and enjoy some of her furniture up close, such as the iconic Chaise Longue Basculante and the Fauteuil Pivotant. Discover sketches, photographs, scrapbooks and prototypes that shed new light on her unique creative process and her rightful place in design history, alongside works by her friends and peers, including  Le Corbusier,  Fernand Léger  and etchings by Pablo Picasso. 

Her life as a fiercely independent woman - a pioneer, a sportswoman and a global traveller – can be traced throughout her work and helped define the modern interior.

The exhibition was curated in collaboration with the Perriand family and archive and marks the 25th anniversary of the first Charlotte Perriand exhibition at the Design Museum in 1996.
