Princeton Architectural Press, Jan 1, 2004 - Architecture - 287 pages
The acclaimed French designer Charlotte Perriand (1903-1999) worked in the studio of Le Corbusier in the late 1920s together with Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret. The famous Corbusier furniture pieces are the result of this unique collaboration. A facsimile reproduction of Charlotte Perriand's 140 page Livre de Bord, her sketchbook during the years 1927-1933, is the centrepiece of this publication. Arthur Rüegg's introductory essay brings to life in text and image those pioneering years. His precise and detailed commentaries inspire an appreciation and understanding of the richness of each drawing. A 16 page dossier of illustrations recreates the famous 1929 Salon d'Automne and the original furnishings of Villa Church. Arthur Rüegg, Professor for Architecture and Construction at the ETH in Zurich, is the leading expert on Le Corbusier's interior design, furniture and colour theory.
