Charlotte Perriand retrospective opens at Fondation Louis Vuitton



An extensive exhibition of Charlotte Perriand’s work at the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris reveals the art-filled interiors and architectural scale of the French designer’s expansive life and career.

Charlotte Perriand: Inventing a New World marks 20 years since Perriand passed away at the age of 96 in 1999.

The show is the first time the entirety of the Frank Gehry-designed gallery has been given over to the work of a single artist.

Spread over four floors and occupying 11 galleries, the exhibition includes 50 rare examples of her furniture designs, including pieces from her time working in Japan and Brazil.
