Design Pierre Paulin, 1967
Stainless steel frame, saddle-leather
Made in Holland by Artifort
"A chair should be more than simply functional. It should be friendly, fun and colorful." -Pierre Paulin
With pleasure, Artifort is now presenting Paulin's design icon, the F 444. This now-famous design dates from 1963 and is once more in production. One of the most representative pieces of furniture from the innovative nineteen-sixties has made its return. This unique armchair - still a collector's item today - will once again acquire a place in the heart, and the home, of those who appreciate fine design.
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.
The F 444 has a chrome base with a black connecting piece. It is upholstered exclusively in saddle leather in your choice of black, white or natural.
