Cassina, together with Creative LAB, supports the exhibition ‘Charlotte Perriand, photographer and designer’ Seoul, 23rd October 2020 – 13th December 2020
Cassina, the only company authorised to manufacture furniture designed by Charlotte Perriand (1903-1999), is delighted to be part of the exhibition ‘Charlotte Perriand, photographer and designer’ curated by Enrica Viganò at 10 Corso Como Seoul. Cassina has always had a special interest in the diffusion of the works of the designers and architects of its collections, promoting cultural initiatives and creating exceptional collaborations.
In 2004, Cassina introduced a complete collection devoted to the works of Charlotte Perriand, designer, architect and pioneer of modernity. Through careful and rigorous philological reconstruction, carried out in close collaboration with Pernette Perriand Barsac, the company continues to authentically reissue her furniture for international distribution.
This retrospective, following the analogue exhibition at 10 Corso Como in Milan, traces the importance of photography in Charlotte Perriand’s creative process and reveals a novel approach to her work. Alongside her photographs, a number of pieces of furniture exclusively produced by Cassina have been loaned for the exhibition including, the Nuage bookshelf, the Riflesso cabinet, the Tokyo chaise-longue and the Guéridon low table, as well as the LC4 Villa Church chaise-longue by Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand.
