Introduction by art historian Kai Lobjakas
The free-spirited and politically engaged designer and architect Charlotte Perriand designed revolutionary furnishings and participated in the invention of modern dwellings that were in harmony with both their inhabitants and their environment.
From her avant-garde battles alongside Le Corbusier in the 1930s to her experience in Japan and affirmation of a lifestyle based on openness and flexibility, this film, in the form of a notebook of memories, gives us a detailed and personal look at a life filled with passion and creativity, and offers reflections on contemporary society, as seen through the eyes of an exceptional figure.
