Charlotte Perriand (1903-1999) France

Charlotte Perriand was a French furniture designer and architect. She is considered as one of the most important furniture designers of all time. Perriand studied furniture design at the École de l'Union Centrale des Arts Décoratifs in 1920-1925 and later began collaborating with Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret. The designer trio designed innovative furnishings in tubular steel and leather, which were exhibited in 1929 during the Autumn Salon in Paris, and was very well received by visitors.
Perriand later became a design consultant in Japan in the 1940s, which had great influence in her work. As a result, Perriand designed a chair in plywood she called a union between western and Japanese culture and design. Perriand continued her career till late in life, and in 1993 she designed a tea pavilion for UNESCO as part of the Japanese culture festival in Paris.
