About this vintage design furniture

In 1960, French designer Pierre Paulin decided to create an armchair for Dutch publisher Artifort, responding to the new desires of consumers who, in a post-war context, wished to rediscover novelty, cheerfulness and comfort in their interiors. For the creation of his armchair combining comfort and aesthetics, he drew his inspiration, as usual, from nature and organic forms, this time aiming for an armchair resembling a mushroom. Artifort still publishes this model, which is available in several versions, including the pouf, Junior and Big. The structure is made up of an internal ring system comprising three rings: one for the floor, the second for the seat and the last forming the armrests. The chair is upholstered in Gommapiuma, a foam rubber patented by Pirelli a few years ago. Its organic, rounded and enveloping shape ensures optimum comfort for the user. It features a spacious seat and a low backrest that curves back to provide ergonomic support. A plywood plate is used to stabilize the base, which has no legs. The whole unit is upholstered in leopard-print fabric. In very good condition, entirely reupholstered in our workshop. Reference : 302810
