The popularity enjoyed today by the French furniture designer Pierre Paulin traces its roots back to the Pop era, when Paulin incarnated the Pop aesthetic perfectly in his unique and revolutionary chairs. It was during the early 1960s, when Andy Warhol was exhibiting his controversial Pop Art, and Brigitte Bardot was redefining sexual freedom, that Pierre Paulin designed his non-conformist chairs, changing radically the look of our interiors. Innovative and yet steeped in his times, a joyful modernist, he stages the body, and covers his egg-shaped chairs with mushrooms, oraange slices, flower petals, tongues, cough drops, sea shells, waves, half-open lips, and more. Sexy, playful, exuberantm yet comfortable, his furniture is above all supple and lively.
