Orange Slice

Designed 1960

The Orange Slice armchair is one of the most popular design classics in the world. The iconic armchair makes every room more open, spacious and cheerful. The most striking characteristic of the Orange Slice are the two identical shells of the chair that seem to 'curl'. If you look closely, it is as if the chair is laughing at you.  Playful and timeless.

In 1952, designer Pierre Paulin became acquainted with the technique of bending plywood. This technique was the basis of the F437. Soon the armchair got the nickname Orange Slice, because of the resemblance to orange slices.

Select from a wide range of beautiful colors, fabrics and leather. Leg finish in Powder coat or chrome.

Available in two heights. And now even scaled to a Orange Slice junior for the real collectors.

Designer

The French president Sarkozy honored Pierre Paulin as "the man who made design an art". In November 2009, Paulin was posthumously awarded the distinction of "Royal Designer for Industry" (RDI).

Pierre Paulin (1927-2009) made a considerable initial impression with a contemporary shell fauteuil. What makes his designs so distinctive is their striking sculptural shape, which earned Paulin many prizes worldwide. His work remains timeless and progressive even today. This is not form for form’s sake but applied design. With comfort as the constant starting-point. Paulin’s designs dating from the nineteen-sixties and seventies can be admired in museums throughout the world. Apart from furniture, he also designed interiors for the French presidents Pompidou and Mitterrand in the Elysée Palace in Paris. Pierre Paulin died on 13 June 2009 in a hospital in Montpellier (France).
