A former pupil of the school on the Rue Beethoven Charlotte Perriand is one of the great figures of the Inter-War period. She is one of the few women to have worked alongside Le Corbusier and to have been able to impose her resolutely modern style during the 1950s. The sideboard shown here is a later work by her, specially designed for Maurice Jardot, the director of the Galerie Louise Leiris. Its minimalist lines and formal simplicity were requested by him to accompany his collection of paintings by Picasso, L├ęger and Masson
