Following the launch of our exclusive collaboration with esteemed art gallery Amélie, Maison d’Art on January 16th, we look into ‘Super-Position,’ a fusion of art and design.
Soundtracked by DJ Fiona Zanetti and abundant in cocktails and canapés as is customary of a Conran event, curious observers witnessed new reimaginations of Pierre Paulin’s Pacha Chair. Honouring its 45th anniversary, the storefront was converted into a gallery with the artistic touch of Amélie du Chalard.
About the Gallery & Exhibition
du Chalard’s Paris-based Amélie, Maison d’Art, offers a new life to the traditional gallery concept, made up of exhibition spaces presented as the rooms of a townhouse.
Renowned for its roster of contemporary artists and designers, the gallery presents works by Frédéric Heurlier Cimolai and Tanguy Tolila on the theme ‘Super-Position’ – a mix of shapes, materials and colours. Cimolai’s work explores overlapping lines and contours, while Tolila’s contrasts colours throughout materials such as books and sculptures.
About the Chair
Originally designed in 1975 by Pierre Paulin, Gubi’s enveloping Pacha Lounge Chair combines sublime comfort with creative expression. Befitting the 70s spirited new approaches to design, Paulin designed Pacha without the constraints of legs, thereby attesting the comfort and cosiness of low-level living.
The lounge chair’s elegant, rounded form is the result of soft foam padding, finely stitched lines and fabric upholstery. The exhibition presents eight Conran-exclusive upholstery options, including ones by Kvadrat, Dedar and Sahco.
