Through February 24th, 2020, the Fondation Louis Vuitton has opened a large-scale retrospective dedicated to Charlotte Perriand, a free woman, pioneer of modernity, a leading figure of 20th-century design, who contributed to the definition of a new art de vivre. In this short film, get an overview of the exhibition exploring the links between art, architecture, and design as a tribute to this visionary creator.
