Nuage à Plots

Design Charlotte Perriand

Designing space

A design piece that is not just furniture but a new, true architectural element, intended to lend rhythm to space and the unexpected lightness of the cloud from which it takes its name.

PRODUCTION YEAR

1952/1956

Nuage à Plots by Charlotte Perriand belongs to a select group of furnishings that are archetypal in the way of interpreting space. Inspired, like the original Nuage, by a series of floating shelves mounted on the walls of the Imperial Palace in Kyoto, the bookcase is a rhythmic system of shelves and vertical elements (aluminum plots) connected and held together with tensioning rods and fixing anchors to form a modular piece of furniture. Two features differentiate this model from the original ‒ the single 33.5cm depth of the top, and the plots, left exposed without adding sliding doors and crafted of a single piece of curved aluminum that replace the classic sides and back, serving as vertical elements to separate the shelves. A system based on alternating negative and positive spaces, of wood and aluminum, of hot and cold. A versatile piece, with feet or wall-mounted, a source of inspiration for generations of designers.

In this context, her specific contribution focuses on interior composition, conceived as creating a new way of living, still today at the heart of contemporary lifestyle. In the sphere of twentieth century furnishing history, the advent of modernity made possible the entrepreneurial audacity of this true reformer of interior design.
