The first section of the exhibition, titled Le Salon (The Salon), commemorates the 10th anniversary of Andrée Putman’s passing and celebrates the life and legacy of the legendary designer. Within the salon, an original selection of furniture and objects by Studio Putman is displayed along with photographs and personal artefacts of the late designer. The scenography is designed by Andrée’s daughter, Olivia, and highlights the late artist’s masterful use of black and white checkers as a recurring motif in her practice. A recognisable marker of the studio to this day, the iconic checkerboard pattern is a legacy and signature perpetuated over two generations of Putman designers.
