My upcoming film about collecting furniture by Charlotte Perriand would not be possible without the generous help of many people. I am pleased to announce her that Francois Laffaneur, founder of the Parisian Galerie Downtown and one of the world’s experts in on collecting French mid-century design, has joined as one of the speakers who share their knowledge in the film; this film will be a part of the online programming of the New York School of Interior Design. Thanks for Mr. Laffaneur’s generosity, images from the archives of Galerie Steph Simon, which he owns, will be featured in the film. Charlotte Parriand collaborated with Jean Prouve on exhibition at Parisian Gallery, where she became the gallery’s art director and designed its interior together with Henri Prouve. Whereas Prouve and Perriand previously aimed for mass production, they introduced a customized and craft-driven approach in the pieces shown at Galerie Steph Simon.
