MOMENTS X CHARLOTTE PERRIAND cc-tapis & Silvera
Capturing a moment in the illustrious career of designer Charlotte Perriand, Silvera London present the Les Arcs rugs for cc-tapis. From Paris' Charlotte Perriand archives, six previously hidden colour studies for woven panels come to life as hand-knotted rugs by cc-tapis. Named after Les Arcs ski station's Pierre Blanche building, "Les Arcs" pays homage to Perriand's 20-year dedication. Originally designed in 1972, budget limitations prevented its creation. Now, over 50 years later, daughter Pernette Perriand Barsac and cc-tapis introduce the Les Arcs Collection. Crafted from 100% Himalayan wool by cc-tapis artisans in Nepal, the rugs faithfully recreate Perriand's original designs in three sizes and twelve diverse hues, ranging from the subtle "antelope" brown to the vivacious "amiral" blue, conjure a palette that mirrors her profound love for the artisanal arts.
