The Mushroom chair is a Pierre Paulin classic and rests in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Bold, bulbous and organic, the Mushroom chair has been providing great comfort and eliciting ebullient responses for over 50 years. In 2013 Artifort added a diminutive Mushroom Junior chair based on Paulin's designs and re-introduced the slightly more expansive, classic Big Mushroom chair. Now there's a perfect seating solution for everyone who appreciates timeless design and comfort.
Measurements: W 25.2" X H 20" X D 24"
Materials: Metal Framework, High-Density Cushion Core, Selected Fabric or Leather
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.
