About the Author

Pernette Perriand is Charlotte Perriand's daughter and her longstanding assistant. Jacques Barsac is author of Charlotte Perriand catalogue raisonne (volume 4 to be published). There are also contributions from international authors including Mary McLeod, Romy Golan and Japanese Yuko Kikuchi.


In this hefty catalog for the blowout retrospective on view now at the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris, Perriand comes across as a design reformer who also knew, better than many of her colleagues, how to sell and how to persuade. Prepare to swoon over her ski resorts, to envy the impossibly chic Air France offices she designed in London, Tokyo and Rio de Janeiro, and to scour eBay listings for vintage Perriand chairs for the rest of your life.--The New York Times
