Tulip Midi Armchair

Designed 1960

The Tulip Midi was the missing member of the Tulip family for a long time. In terms of its dimensions, this midsize armchair is the perfect equilibrium between the Little Tulip dining chair and the large Tulip armchair. The Tulip Midi, at the time known as 'F549,' has a cross-base and disk-base.

The family members of the Tulip Midi are the Tulip armchair, 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).
