The Little Tulip was adapted from Pierre Paulin's popular Tulip chair in 1965. The chair is a design icon and one of the most coveted Paulin works produced by Artifort. Its compact dimensions and graceful form make it the perfect choice for a wide array of stylish residential and commercial applications. As a homage to Pierre Paulin, Artifort has reintroduced the classic cross-base as a design alternative to the popular swiveling disk base for both the Little Tulip, Tulip Midi and Tulip chairs. Both base variations complement the chairs' fluid lines and superb balance. The Tulip chair and ottoman also makes an excellent companion set to the Little Tulip and provides the ultimate in refined lounging and comfort.
Measurements: W 28.3" x H 29.1" X D 22.8"
Materials: Beech Wood Seat Shell, High-Density Cushion Core, Swiveling Disk Base in Polished Aluminum or Powder Coat, or Stainless Steel Non-Swiveling Cross-Base
Mention Artifort and Pierre Paulin immediately springs to mind. The brand and designer are inextricably linked. Their deep bond and collaborative history are legendary within the design world and each, undeniably, drove the other to greater heights of commercial success and critical acclaim. By the early 1960s Paulin's sculptural designs were so successful and sought after in the international market that Artifort's production facilities could barely keep up with demand. French presidents Pompidou and Mitterand commissioned Paulin to design interiors in the Elysee Palace in Paris, further amplifying his notoriety and significance as a visionary, multi-talented designer. Pierre Paulin continued to design and collaborate with Artifort until his death on June 13th, 2009 in Montpellier, France. In November, 2009 Paulin was posthumously awarded the prestigious title, "Royal Designer of Industry" by the Royal Society of the Encouragement of Arts, Manufacturers and Commerce. Today, Pierre Paulin designs are included in permanent collections of prestigious museums throughout the world.
