Pierre Paulin

French, 1927 - 2009
Pierre Paulin (1927-2009) was a French industrial designer known for his innovative furniture designs in the mid-20th century. He was born in Paris and studied at the École Camondo before working for a few years in the studio of Marcel Gascoin.
Paulin's designs were characterized by their sleek, organic shapes and innovative use of materials. He created furniture that was both functional and aesthetically pleasing, and his designs were often ahead of their time. In the 1960s, Paulin gained international recognition for his work, and his furniture was used in the interior design of many public spaces, including airports, hotels, and government buildings.
Some of Paulin's most well-known designs include the Ribbon Chair (1966), which features a fluid, undulating shape, and the Mushroom Chair (1960), which has a rounded, organic form. He also designed a series of modular seating units called "Élysée" for the French President's private apartments in the Élysée Palace.
Paulin's work has been exhibited in museums around the world, including the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and the Museum of Modern Art in New York. His designs continue to be sought after by collectors and enthusiasts of mid-century modern furniture.
