Design Pierre Paulin, 1967
Tubular steel frame, upholstery
Made in Holland by Artifort

Artifort F574, Le Chat, looks as if it were designed with a single movement of the pen. The backrest and seat seem to leap out of the rear base. It makes the chair both inviting and dynamic. A pleasure to sit on. With Le Chat, Pierre Paulin used aluminium profiles for the first time as a base. Later, he also used them for the Groovy, one of Artifort’s classics. In 1969, Le Chat deservedly won the Monza Design Award.

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.
