By Anne-Marie Fèvre:
The Parisian Laffanour-Downtown Gallery returns to Charlotte Perriand (1903-1999), interior architect and designer, by the side of three particular orders. In Paris, for the Monnet family (1951), she designed a set of furniture crossed by a staircase of perfect proportions. For the architect Geroges Candilis, the fitted out a chalet in Megève (1951) where a very inventive pass-through piece of furniture dominates, which also serves as a partition. In Saint-Nicolas-de-Véroce (Savoir, 1938), for the annex of a hotel, she designed a « shaped table » with six sides. The great lady, so enamored of the mountains, demonstrates to what extent she knows how to « caress » wood and master economical forms in space. The Laffanour-Downtown Gallery manages to stage this way of life to modern and warm, with forms that have become universal.
