Opening of the Charlotte Perriand installation, an icon of modernity

Cassina shares her passion for Charlotte Perriand with Louis Vuitton. In Paris, he presents the installation “Charlotte Perriand une icône de la modernité” and, as a world premiere, the new prototypes of Cassina’s wooden reissues. To appreciate the fascinating works of this visionary architect, the publisher imagined large round windows on the windows of his showroom through which the curious can take a first look. The experiment continues inside, where five similar structures were built with an octagonal skeleton, in vibrant Plexiglas tones drawn from Charlotte Perriand’s colour palette. In each of these capsules we find LV mannequins and prototypes by Charlotte Perriand, such as the small wooden swivel armchair “Indochine”, the high and low wooden “Mexico” tables, or the LC4 CP tribute edition. To discover at 236, bd Saint-Germain.
