Pierre Chareau no. 2
Pierre Chareau, Interior Design and Architecture presents an unprecedented overview of around 80 interior design projects (1908-1938), both private and public, along with his architectural designs (1925-1950). It reveals Pierre Chareau’s evolving approach to interior design, from his early days as a decorator when he incorporated his furniture into existing spaces, to the emergence, over time, of a resolutely architectural approach to space, where furniture comes to life and becomes architecture in its own right. Along with an inventory of his design projects, it provides a detailed, illustrated analysis of twenty-five of them, most of which were commissioned by three clients, the Dalsace, Bernheim and Dreyfus families. This second volume brings to light the designer’s long-term commitment to architecture, tracing his participation in International Congresses of Modern Architecture, the Modern Architects’ Society and Rassemblements des Architectes, as well as his collaboration with the journal L’Architecture d’Aujourd’hui. The authors offer a critical analysis of the work of Pierre Chareau the architect, deciphering the 13 projects he undertook in France between 1923 and 1938, and then the work he accomplished in the US, between 1945 and 1950, from Djemil Anik’s cottage to Robert Motherwell’s studio in East Hampton. Finally, the book provides an in-depth analysis of the Maison de Verre (glass house). With its portrait of Jean Dalsace and his wife Annie, it sheds light on the central role the patrons played in the project. It also contextualises the social and architectural setting at the time and explains the significance of light and sanitation in the Maison de Verre. The narrative covers the trials and tribulations faced during construction before describing the main principles that governed the design of the house and analysing its volumes and spaces.
