Charlotte Perriand designed Applique Cylindrique for her mountain chalet Le Vieux Matelot in Saint Nicolas de Véroce in the early 30s. Perriand’s interest in pivoting screens reflects her observation on human gestures: a simple touch allows to direct the lampshade and to control the light beam, making it possible to adjust intensity and direction. Applique Cylindrique is available in two versions, Longue and Petite, and in two new finishes anthracite grey and white wash along with the iconic light blue painted metal.
She was an architect, designer, as well as an enthusiastic hiker and skier, a visionary, an independent woman and a global traveller. From the early decades of the 20th century, she revisited the concept of design and its aesthetic values, giving life to contemporary design through timeless, iconic and authentic objects that bear witness to modern times.Discover
