A legendary figure in French design, Pierre Paulin reached the height of celebrity with his interiors of George Pompidou's Elysee and his furniture display at the Louvre. A champion of unified design, Paulin has created a new synthesis within interior architecture. His chairs in the form of mushrooms, tongues, ribbons, tulips, even snakes, from the Exposition Universelle d'Osaka, are all made of foam and covered with colored jersey. They offer a range of forms that are rigorous, organic, functional and voluptuous. His furniture perfectly symbolizes the 60s and 70s. Recalling the evolution of society, Pierre Paulin's pieces have become cult objects, anchored in the collective unconscious of us all. Specifications: 6.0 x 8.5" 80 Pages | 60 Images Hardcover
