The Orange Slice chair was originally conceived by Pierre Paulin in 1960 and remains one of his most influential and highly regarded designs. The chair's unique structure employs two perfectly identical shells of pressed beech wood wrapped in high-density cushion core. Pierre Paulin's iconic design has a strong and resolute stance, looks great from any angle and sets the standard for overall comfort and ease of use. The Orange Slice works beautifully in contemporary residential settings as well as the most demanding commercial applications. In 2013 Artifort added a diminutive Orange Slice Junior chair based on Paulin's designs.
Measurements: W 31.5" x H 27.6" x D 33"
Materials: Two Pressed Beech Wood Shells, High-Density Cushion Core, Polished Chrome Frame and 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.
