She was an architect and designer as well as an enthusiastic hiker and skier, a visionary, an independent woman, and a global traveler. From the early decades of the 20th century, she revisited the concept of design and its aesthetic values, giving life to contemporary design through timeless, iconic, and authentic objects that bear witness to modern times.
To Charlotte Perriand, lamps were not a decorative element added for no reason, but a functional and technical component, a tool and an object answering to specific needs. Perriand’s minimalistic approach instills a timeless character in her creations: these are the “Useful Forms” that came from the movement she co-founded in 1949. Like Perriand’s furniture, her lamps are not immovable but rotate and bend themselves, adjusting to our needs.
