Charlotte Perriand’s innovative designs are the expression of a new art de vivre that ran against the currents of the day. Hers is a design approach nourished by multidisciplinary activities, including a key role played by photography. In this art of living, Perriand pours her passion for observing Nature into the smallest, most revealing details. The Le Monde de Charlotte Perriand collection ‒ which began as a partnership between Cassina and Pernette Perriand-Barsac, Charlotte’s daughter and founder of her mother’s archives ‒ is inspired by the patterns in the photographs taken by Perriand between 1933 and 1934 and manufactured in partnership with Ginori 1735. Hand-decorated patterns for porcelain dinnerware that brings another of the designer’s passions to fruition ‒ ceramics ‒ matured in contact with the Japanese masters during the years she lived in the Far East. Le Monde de Charlotte Perriand collection is composed of a charger, dinner plate, soup plate and dessert plate, presented in sets of two, with three different decorations that can be mixed or matched.  Engraved on the plates are the designs inspired by Charlotte’s photos. Here, the plates painted with the Tronc pattern depict the circular striations of a tree trunk that could be the face of a lemur or the sensual mouth of an Indian goddess. Or, in the Neige pattern, the contours of a snow slab in the cracks of a stone floor, captured on film in the Fontainebleau forest in 1934, elicit the likenesses of mythological animals or gorgons. Or, still, the fish bone on the Arête service that calls to mind a mysterious work tool. To ensure authenticity, each item is marked with the Cassina and Ginori 1735 logos.
