It was this interior scheme of the glacial Bar sous le Toît, or rooftop bar that Charlotte Perriand had created in glass, steel and aluminium, for the Salon D’Automne exhibition in Paris in 1927, which brought her the desirable job in the atelier of Le Corbusier, and therefore came to shape her entire career. When a couple of months earlier the 24-year old Perriand visited Le Corbusier asking to hire her as a furniture designer, the master refused. But after being taken by his cousin to see the show, he decided to hire Perriand on the spot. The rest is history. While being employed by Le Corbusier, Perriand created some of the more legendary furniture designs of the high Modernism.
