Featured spreads are from Charlotte Perriand: The Modern Life, published to accompany the exhibition on view through September 2021 at The Design Museum, London. Collecting the influential modernist's most famous interiors, original furniture and architectural projects, as well as never-before-seen sketchbooks filled with off-the-cuff drawings, notes, fabric samples, ephemera, photographs, calculations and more, this is both a suitably well-designed object and an incisive glimpse into a mind that was always exuberantly ahead of its time. "Work less in big factories," Perriand wrote in one 1932 notebook, "because the next stage in the evolution of machinery consists not in quantity but a change in human quality, slow down the pace of work, reduce nervous fatigue and change machinery that is harmful to people … Man must not be modeled on the machine, but the machine on man."
