Description
Design Pierre Paulin, 1967.
Tubular steel frame, upholstery.
Made in Holland by Artifort.

'A chair should be more than simply functional. It should be friendly, fun and colorful.' -Pierre Paulin

Feel free to speak easy in this low lounge chair. The flowing form and significant colors enable uninhibited interior seating accents to set tongues-a-wagging. Tongue whispers gently and whose flowing shape and subtle colors make it possible to create interior seating accents easily and, most of all, expressively. Designed in 1967, the tongue chair is part of the permanent design collection of the Museum of Modern art in New York.

Pierre Paulin studied stone carving and clay modeling at the Ecole Camondo in Paris in the early fifties where he began designing furniture for Thonet. In 1958, he became the designer for Artifort where he created a series of sculptural chairs with an inner structure of steel tubing, covered in foam and fabric. In 1968, Paulin collaborated with Le Mobilier National and received many important government commissions including furniture and interiors for the Elysee Palace in Paris. He also designed home appliances.
