Concept

A great observer, Charlotte Perriand was fascinated by nature: she collected many objects found during her travels, such as stones, roots, pieces of wood and fish bones, and she observed their shape, materials and geometries and used them as elements of inspiration for her designs.
Each hand-painted design in the Le Monde de Charlotte Perriand collection is an object of poetry and testimonies a conceptual adventure ready to ignite the imagination. The elements of nature photographed by Charlotte Perriand, however unrecognisable at first glance, awaken a series of associations that are recalled during one’s culinary experience. The contours of a patch of snow in the crevices of a stone floor, photographed in the forest of Fontainebleau near Paris in 1934, evoke mythological animals, gorgons or carnival figures. The circular bands of a tree trunk conjure up the hallucinatory face of a lemur or the sensual mouth of an Indian goddess, and a fish bone on a black background remind us of a work tool whose use is unknown.
