cc-tapis an encounter with Charlotte Perriand (1972-2023)
By 1972, architect and designer Charlotte Perriand had dedicated a significant amount of her life to Les Arcs, a sprawling ski complex in the French Alps that would become one of her most ambitious projects. Six unpublished colour studies for a series of woven panels intended to brighten the alpine apartments, dated that same year, have laid untouched for 50 years in her Paris archives. Now they are brought to life by cc-tapis as a collection of handwoven carpets, presented in an exhibition celebrating Perriand’s unpublished archives and mastery of colour – testament to her lifelong passion for artisanal craft, from Japanese lacquer work to line block printing.
