Neatly filed away in the Charlotte Perriand archives in Paris, 6 unpublished colour studies originally conceived for a series of woven panneaux ouvrants are brought to life for the first time as a collection of hand-knotted rugs by cc-tapis.

An original drawing by Charlotte Perriand, one of 6 which have remained unseen in the Charlotte Perriand archives for over 50 years.

Taking its name from the Pierre Blanche building at Les Arcs 1600 ski station in the French Alps, “Les Arcs” is a project to which Charlotte Perriand consecrated 20 years of her life. Designed in 1972, unfortunately due to budgetary constraints the collection was never realized.

After more than 50 years, in January 2023, Pernette Perriand Barsac and cc-tapis present the Les Arcs Collection of rugs, respecting the color proportions outlined by Charlotte Perriand in her technical drawings.

Crafted from 100% Himalayan wool by cc-tapis artisans in Nepal, Les Arcs reproduces the original designs in 3 sizes and in 12 assorted shades – from light “antelope” brown and “abeille” yellow to bright “amiral” blue and “azalée” pink. A testament to Charlotte Perriand’s lifelong passion for artisanal craft.

From the 17th to 22nd of January, the Les Arcs Collection was displayed at the Galerie Les Filles du Calvaire on the occasion of Paris Design Week, with an accompanying exhibition of archival objects and illustrations by Charlotte Perriand, exploring the designer’s use of colour throughout her artistic studies and career.
