Pierre Paulin

French furniture and interior design legend Pierre Paulin's pieces are instantly recognisable for their colourful and sculptural lines. With playful names such as Orange Slice, Tongue or Mushroom, his chairs revolutionised the way we relax at home, and the introduction of low-level seating such as the Pacha Lounge Chair proved instrumental to the development of late 20th-century design.

French furniture and interior design legend Pierre Paulin's pieces are instantly recognisable for their colourful and sculptural lines. With playful names such as Orange Slice, Tongue or Mushroom, his chairs revolutionised the way we relax at home, and the introduction of low-level seating such as the Pacha Lounge Chair proved instrumental to the development of late 20th-century design.

The Conran Shop

Born in Paris in 1927, Paulin discovered a passion for design alongside his sculptor and automotive pioneer great-uncle, Georges Paulin. He started his career at the École Camondo and achieved success in 1954 with the launch of his first furniture collection, followed by collaborations with distinguished furniture houses Artifort and Thonet. In 1975, Paulin established the ADSA design agency with his wife, Maia Wodzislawska.

Paulin’s avant-garde designs were revolutionary at their unveiling and are coveted to this day. Characterized by their unique, expressive shapes, the infamous pieces can be found at respected institutions the world over. The Tongue Chair is now on display at New York’s MoMA, the former French president Georges Pompidou’s private collection held the Pumpkin Armchair while the Butterfly Armchair sits at Melbourne's National Gallery of Victoria.

Pacha Lounge Chair

Pacha Lounge Chair

Originally designed in 1975 by Pierre Paulin for Gubi, the enveloping Pacha Lounge Chair in ivory and pearl gold combines sublime comfort with creative expression.

With the 70s being a decade of spirited new approaches to design, Paulin designed Pacha without the constraints of legs, thereby attesting the comfort and cosiness of low-level living.
