Cassina: Rio table

In the last few weeks we’ve submerged ourselves in the world of furniture and design with our collaboration with DREAM interiors. Being surrounded by beautiful pieces of design and seeing them in pictures makes you wonder about the designer behind them and the influences that led them to create. This week, we shine the light on Charlotte Perriand, french architect and designer, well known for her designs for Cassina, who at just twenty-four years old, started a decade-long collaboration with Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret, at the famous design studios at 35, rue de Sèvres in Paris.

Charlotte Perriand’s contribution on interior composition played a part in the avant-garde cultural movement beginning in the early 1900s, which largely influenced the contemporary lifestyle we know today.

At the beginning of her professional career she was acclaimed by critics for her Bar under the roof exhibited at the Salon d’Automne in 1927 and constructed entirely in nickel-plated copper and anodized aluminium, and soon after began working with Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret. As her presence in their studio adds a distinct and clearly visible dimension of humaneness to the often cold rationalism of Le Corbusier, she quickly became a cornerstone in their projects.

Cassina: Nuage Bibliothèque Murale


A 7-year stay in Japan followed, revealing her artistic talent to the fullest, through a reinterpretation of the reality of life to echo both tradition and modernity. After her work as a professional, she concentrated on a series of original and balanced productions, commissioned by top-level authorities and leading companies of the calibre of Air France, among others.

The distinguishing factor of Charlotte Perriand’s personality is a sincere loyalty to the principles of humane and innovative rationalism, preserved intact in her projects, on which she worked with such passion, also in readiness for their revival in the “Cassina I Maestri” collection.
