Pierre Chareau’s Maison de Verre

I’m in the midst of teaching one of my favorite classes at CCA – the History and Theory of 20th Century Furniture. This a seminar class surveying the incredibly complex, rich and interesting technical and cultural context of furniture design from Chippendale through to the latest showings at the Milan Furniture Fair. Way too much material to cover in a single semester, but I try my best; as do my students. In the last few weeks they have been helping me cover the huge diversity of designers by making presentations of their own. Last week, Justin Laughlin did a engaging presentation on the French designer Pierre Chareau and drew my attention to a great video on his seminal Maison de Verre. I thought I’d post it here for your enjoyment!
