Designed by Charlotte Perriand for her mountain chalet Le Vieux Matelot, Applique Cylindrique is a design that dates back to the early 1930s. Her 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.
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
