As if Pierre Paulin had premonitions of flower power, the 1965 Tulip chair spreads its simple, half-opened petals around its occupant, inviting and warming at the same time. The Artifort Tulip line consists of the Tulip lounge chair, Little Tulip dining chair, medium-sized Tulip Midi chair, and Tulip bar stools. The entire Tulip collection is extremely comfortable, impeccably constructed, and perfectly suited for the most demanding residential and commercial applications. As homage to Pierre Paulin, the Tulip, Little Tulip and Tulip Midi chairs with cross-base have been reintroduced into the Artifort collection.

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.
