20 years after the passing of Charlotte Perriand, Fondation Louis Vuitton celebrates the visionary French designer and architect with a new exhibition. For the first time, the museum dedicates its entire Frank Gehry building to a single designer, showcasing Perriand's life and work through her unique design, architecture and various artworks.

For “Charlotte Perriand: Inventing a New World” the Fondation has reconstructed some of Perriand’s most pioneering and influential pieces. Those familiar with her achievements will recall how her input and creations presage current discussions about the role that women and nature play in our society. The exhibition invites visitors to engage with the world of modernity through Perriand's unique gaze.

The retrospective occupies 11 galleries and is spread over four floors, showcasing 50 rare examples of her furniture designs and pieces from her private collection, including the famous chaise longue basculante B306 designed by her and Le Corbusier. Next to this, pieces from her crucial stay in Japan can be seen and include reconstructions of some of her spaces such as the "Maison de Thé."

“Charlotte Perriand: Inventing a New World” documents the full breadth of Perriand’s work and is open to the public between now and February 24, 2020 at Fondation Louis Vuitton.
