This armchair was designed by the French-born designer Pierre Paulin for Artifort. With the signature organic curves that features in many of his pieces. In the 1950s, Artifort’s head of design Kho Liang Le recruited Pierre Paulin – his designs are still produced by Artifort today. Paulin said of his time at the company: “It represented the first full expression of my abilities. I considered the manufacture of chairs to be rather primitive and I was trying to think up new processes.” With his high profile, he went on to redecorate the rooms of the Elysée’s private apartments for Pompidou and furnish the office of François Mitterrand. In November 2009, he was posthumously awarded the distinction of ‘Royal Designer for Industry’.
In good condition. Recently reupholstered in an alpaca velvet in white muffle by Rose Uniacke.
