Charlotte Perriand entered the French design scene in her early 20s, seemingly undeterred by obstacles in an era when even the progressive Bauhaus school of design barred women from architecture and furniture design courses. She studied under Maurice Dufrêne at the École de l’Union Centrale des art Décoratifs, entering into a competition at the 1925 Expo des Arts Décoratifs by age 22 and gaining critical acclaim for her exhibition at the Salon d’Automne in 1927.

Based on this success, that same year she joined the Paris design studio of Le Corbusier and his cousin Pierre Jeanerette. For ten years the three collaborated on “equipment for living,” such as the iconic tubular steel B306 Chaise Longue (1928). After World War II, Perriand joined forces with Jean Prouvé to create modernist furniture that combined the precise lines of Prouvé’s bent steel with the soft, round edges and warmth of natural wood and wicker.

This set of two identical stools are from her 1950-1960 design years. They are in good condition consistent with age and use.
