Bed designed by Charlotte Perriand for Meribel, circa 1960. Manufactured in France. Pinewood and rope, new upholstery. In good original condition with minor wear consistent with age and use, preserving a beautiful patina. Charlotte Perriand (1903-1999). She was born in Paris, in 1903 and attended the École de l'Union centrale des Arts décoratifs from 1920-1925. Charlotte Perriand designed furniture made of anodized aluminium and chromium-plated steel, showing it at the 1927 Salon d'Automne in Paris. After meeting Le Corbusier, Charlotte Perriand worked with him and Pierre Jeanneret until 1937. The revolutionary tubular steel furnishings and system furniture designed by the three were presented as Équipement de l'habitation (home equipment) at the 1929 Salon d'Automne where they were widely acclaimed. In 1930, the Union Des Artistes Modernes (UAM) was founded in Paris, a group that viewed itself as a countermovement challenging such establishment organizations as the Salon d'Automne and also advocated Art Déco and Modernism. From 1931 Charlotte Perriand showed her own work solo there. In 1937, Charlotte Perriand and Pierre Jeanneret collaborated on designing a mountain chalet of sheet aluminium, which they showed at the Exposition Internationale des Arts et Techniques dans la Vie Moderne and later they came up with plans for prefab houses made of aluminium. In 1940, Charlotte Perriand became a design consultant to the Japanese Board of Trade. She lived in Japan, until 1946, and from then on Charlotte Perriand's designs reveal overtones of the Japanese feeling for form, as shown by the 1953, chair Synthèse des Arts.
