Caroline Baumann’s Favorite Work at DM/12

Charlotte Perriand/ BOOKSHELVES/ 1963 Galerie Downtown

“Here’s to Charlotte Perriand, one of the most influential furniture designers of the early modern movement! I love of course the 1928 tubular steel chair, which she’s best known for, but it’s nice to see this 1963 piece here at Design Miami/, very resonant with today’s trends. Functional, elegant, modern and sculptural with simple lines and an innovative mix of materials for the period – still very much at the heart of contemporary lifestyle!”
