Invited in 1940 by the Japanese government to guide the country's industrial art production, Charlotte Perriand (1903-1999) encountered ancestral thought - theism - and architecture, in line with the modernist precepts she defended with Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret. The development of her "art d'habiter", which profoundly changed the French way of life in the 1950s, was born in part from the reflections and studies she carried out during her mission in Japan.

Her exhibitions in Japan, her publications and studies, her achievements in Tokyo - Jacques Martin's house (1953), the Air France agency (1959) - and in Paris - the residence of the Japanese ambassador (1966-1969), the Shiki Fabric House showroom (1975) and the Unesco Tea House (1993) - all bear witness to the links between Western and Japanese cultures and their mutual enrichment.

This book, which retraces half a century of dialogue between Charlotte Perriand and Japan, is based on previously unpublished archives, notes and drawings that reveal the freedom of thought of this great creative artist in the face of the challenges of a complex period. It is a precious lesson for new generations of architects and designers, but also for the people of today.
