Tulip Armchair

Designed 1965

The Tulip armchair spreads its half-open petals around the sitter, inviting and warming at the same time. The stately Tulip is an eminently comfortable armchair. With its matching footstool, it makes a strong and yet exceptionally comfortable combination.  The Tulip armchair is available with swiveling disk base or metal-strip cross-base.

The family members of the Tulip armchair are the midsize Tulip Midi fauteuil, a Little Tulip meeting and dining chair and a Little Tulip barstool.

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).
