Design Pierre Paulin, 2009
Made in Italy by Magis
Born in Paris in 1927, Pierre Paulin made his début in the design field in the 50s (after studying stone carving and clay modelling at the École Camondo in Paris) becoming immediately known for his iconic and innovative designs (such as his sculpture-seats Mushroom, Tongue Chair, Ribbon Chair), which to some degree anticipated the approaching social revolutions through the lifestyles they encouraged.
In the 70s he was commissioned by the French President Pompidou to fit out a series of reception rooms in the Élysée Palace, bringing modernity to this setting through his emblematic and innovative style.
In these same years, Paulin also collaborated with Le Mobilier National, renovating the Denon wing of the Louvre and various other important locations in Paris.
