Musée d'art moderne de Saint-Étienne La Terrasse
Du 23 février au 26 mai 2013

The exhibition Charlotte Perriand et le Japon, is devoted to the impact on the French designer of her discovery of the Japanese archipelago. Her mission in Japan, from 1940, along with the links that lasted up to 1993 with the Maison de Thé commission, have inspired highly original design propositions. The evocation of her first exhibition; Tradition-Selection-Creation precedes the reconstitution of Proposition pour une synthèse des arts , organized in Tokyo. Her post-war personal creations and her collaborations with Steph Simon are also presented.
