RUBINO, Silvana. Bodies, chairs, necklaces: Charlotte Perriand and Lina Bo Bardi. Cad. Pagu [online]. 2010, vol.2Selected edition, pp. 0-0. ISSN 0104-8333.

The article explores the crossroads of the trajectories of two professional women linked to the production of space: the Italian architect Lina Bo Bardi, who worked in Brazil, and the French designer Charlotte Perriand. The article begins by comparing two photographs and then investigates the performance of these two well-known professionals, their moments of exclusion and disqualification, as well as their successes, throughout their careers. As they both had long and diversified careers, we capture two moments when they produced their emblematic chairs, which they exhibited using their own bodies, albeit in a fairly anonymous way, as an ergonometric measure.

Keywords : Lina Bo Bardi; Charlotte Perriand; Modernism; Domestic Space; Design.
