Fauteuil pivokant. Thonet x Charlotte Perriand (1903-1999)
> V&A Collections
Perriand designed this tubular-steel chair before she met the architect Le Corbusier and joined his studio, in November 1927. Its first use was in the apartment that she designed for herself and her English husband Percy Scholefield, adapting a top-floor photography studio on the place Saint-Sulpice in Paris. Similar chairs had been designed by friends of hers (Rene Herbst, Djo-Bourgeois and Louis Sognot) in Paris, under the influence of designs by Marcel Breuer and Mart Stam, illustrated in design magazines in 1926-7.
