Charlotte Perriand, Pioneer in the Art of Living
The designer and architect Charlotte Perriand was a highly creative figure who left her mark on the 20th century. Free-spirited and politically engaged, she designed revolutionary furnishings and participated in the invention of modern dwellings that were in harmony with both their inhabitants and their environment.
From her avant-garde battles alongside Le Corbusier in the 1930s to her experience in Japan and affirmation of a lifestyle based on openness and flexibility, this film, in the the shape of a notebook of memories gives us an up-close and personal look at a a life filled with passion and creativity. It also opens us to reflections about contemporary society, as seen through the eyes of an exceptional figure.
