Caroline Baumann’s Favorite Work at DM/12

“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!”
