'A chair should be more than simply functional. It should be friendly, fun and colorful.' -Pierre Paulin
The F598 is one of the most pure examples of Paulin's sculptural design. Inviting, comfortable and smart, this chair is for those who demand style and clarity.
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.
