"A chair should be more than simply functional. It should be friendly, fun and colorful." -Pierre Paulin
In 2001, towards the end of his 60-year-long career, Pierre Paulin started a fruitful collaboration with Magis. This collaboration led to the design of the Flower. An elegant low chair made of polycarbonate, Flower portrays Paulin's innovative style, evocative imagery and modern aesthetic.
Pierre Paulin studied stone carving and clay modeling at the Ecole Camondo in Paris in the early fifties where he began designing furniture for Thonet. In 1958, he became the designer for Artifort where he created a series of sculptural chairs with an inner structure of steel tubing, covered in foam and fabric. In 1968, Paulin collaborated with Le Mobilier National and received many important government commissions including furniture and interiors for the Elysee Palace in Paris. He also designed home appliances.
Flower is offered with a clear transparent shell and a seat cushion upholstered in your choice of fabric options.
