  • “Charlotte Perriand – An Icon of Modernity”

    “2015 marks the 50th anniversary of one of the most significant collections of contemporary design, the LC Collection, along with the commemoration of the 50 years since Le Corbusier passed away. To celebrate the anniversary, Cult and Cassina present the exhibition “Charlotte Perriand - An Icon of Modernity” in our Sydney and Melbourne showrooms from September-October, 2015.” CULT Design.

    One of the most influential furniture designers of the early modern movement, Charlotte Perriand (1903-1999) was a French architect and designer who aimed to create functional living spaces in the belief that better design helps in creating a better society. Perriand introduced the ‘modernist’ aesthetic to interiors in the steel, aluminium and glass furniture she created at Le Corbusier’s architectural studio in the late 1920s and 1930s.

    Pernette Perriand-Barsac worked alongside her mother as her personal assistant. Since her mother’s passing Pernette and her husband, Jacques Barsac, have dedicated themselves to keeping the legacy of Charlotte Periand alive through curating exhibitions, authoring books and launching new design collaborations. 

    In order to promote the exhibition, CULT was giving away 2 /4 volumes of the books in exchange for participants to take pictures of Charlotte's furniture and post on Instagram. Pernette Perriand and Jacques Barsac would be the judges and announce winners on the night of the exhibition opening. Lisa Pittar went on to win the competition and was lucky enough to be rewarded with 2 of the volumes.
