More than simply an object of pleasure, art is the spearhead of profound transformations in tomorrow’s society. This was the substance of Perriand’s pioneering philosophy. Especially remarkable was Perriand’s avant-garde vision of the nouvel atelier, embodying a new spirit of modernity. Marking the 20th anniversary of her death, the show sheds light on the role of women, art, and nature through her impressive architectural practice. A free woman, a pioneer of modernity, a leading figure of 20th century design, Perriand contributed to the definition of a new art de vivre.
