London's Design Museum Invites You To Lounge on Charlotte Perriand's Famous Chairs

View, touch and experience the French architect’s work.

The Design Museum in London just launched an experiential exhibition celebrating the work of French architect Charlotte Perriand.

Charlotte Perriand: The Modern Life invites visitors to take an up-close (and we mean up-close) look at the designer’s oeuvre, including her famous chairs for Le Corbusier. Patrons can peruse Perriand’s chaise longue basculante, (rocking lounge chair) fauteuil pivotant (swiveling armchair) and siege à dossier basculante (reclining chair), and even take a seat on the iconic designs– a departure from traditional art exhibitions, visitors can actually touch the works on view. Additional highlights include a recreation of Perriand’s first apartment, a display of her wood work and a collection of the creative’s personal notebooks.

Charlotte Perriand: The Modern Life is on view at London’s Design Museum through September 5.
