interior and furniture designer, paris circa 60s-80s

beautiful metal furniture from parisian visionary maria pergay. here is a great article about her from the new york times:

insanely futuristic and out-of-this world furniture pieces were first exhibited in 1968 for a furniture show at the Galerie Maison Jardin and they were an instant hit. she mostly worked with stainless steel and eventually went to Saudi Arabia to design interiors for the Royal Family. She is still working today on equally (or more) surrealist furniture.
maria pergay is one of my most favorite designers. completely forward-thinking and outrageous furniture, and could still be considered “modern” in the world today.
