CC-TAPIS + CHARLOTTE PERRIAND

CC-TAPIS LAUNCHES THE LES ARCS COLLECTION
OF RUGS BY ICONIC FRENCH DESIGNER AND ARCHITECT CHARLOTTE PERRIAND.
INTERNI INSPIRATION
From the first decades of the twentieth century, French designer and architect Charlotte Perriand brought about profound changes in aesthetic values, birthing modern sensitivity into everyday life.
Best known for her decade-long collaboration with Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret, Perriand’s designs focused on interior compositions
conceived to create a new way of living that is still at the heart of contemporary lifestyles today.
Named for the Pierre Blanche building at Les Arcs 1600 ski resort in the French Alps, the project represents twenty years of dedication from
Perriand. Unfortunately, the 1972 designs never came to fruition due to budgetary constraints.
Today, the Les Arcs collection incorporates the original designs into handmade rugs woven by artisans in Nepal from 100% Himalayan wool
that come in three sizes and twelve assorted colours. They are a testament to Perriand’s lifelong passion for artisanal craft.
