Pierre Paulin (1927 - 2009) was a French furniture designer and interior designer, belonged to a generation of lucky pioneers. Product design was an unknown territory. A world full of challenges as well as risks as there were no academies in his native France at the time; nor any interest from the side of the manufacturers. No chances for further development for the young Pierre Paulin. In 1958 Pierre Paulin joined the Artifort Design Group which gave him the opportunity to realize his sculptural vision of furniture; way too visionary for Paris at the time.
Experimenting with wooden shells, pressed under high-frequency, and tubular frames covered with canvas cotton, foam and elastic fabric, his visions slowly became reality. Visions he treasured as beautiful things for common people, soon to be discovered by a large Avant-Garde audience, causing a true revolution. Since that day revolutionary Pierre Paulin and his colorful sculptures would be worshipped in New York, Paris and Tokyo.
