Pacha Ottoman

Designed 1975

The sculptural softness of the Pacha Collection has always rewarded the sitter with a level of relaxation akin to sitting on the clouds that inspired it. Now the indoor collection’s signature comfort and distinctive aesthetics are available outside. Its low-slung typology – a rarity among outdoor seating products – is sure to make a statement. 

Pierre Paulin’s first sketches for what would become the Pacha Collection were simple pencil outlines that resembled clouds. These forms became the basis for the Pacha Lounge Chair, defining a new spirit of the era. Without the constraint of legs, the Pacha heralded an era of low-level living, introducing a new way of lounging when it was launched in 1975. 

The widely beloved Pacha Lounge Chair was joined by a number of Paulin’s other designs, including a version with armrests, the Pacha Ottoman and the Pacha Sofa – available in modular configurations. All have now been revisited and reinvented for this outdoor collection. With a small footprint, the Pacha Collection can be clustered in different combinations to suit the scale of the outdoor space as well as the style and atmosphere of the setting.

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).
