The beautifully proportioned Tulip Midi was originally designed by Pierre Paulin in 1960 but has been out of production for decades. Realizing the importance of completing the Tulip series, Artifort reintroduced the medium sized Midi chair at the Salone del Mobile in Milan in April of 2016 to great popular and critical acclaim. Its elegant, flowing lines and great comfort strike the perfect balance between the Little Tulip dining chair and the larger Tulip lounge chair. The Midi can be specified with either a swiveling disk base in polished aluminum or a non-swiveling cross-base in polished stainless steel. Artifort powder coat finishes are available for both base options.
Measurements: W 33.9" X H 31.1" X D 28.3"
Materials: Beech Wood Seat Shell, High-Density Cushion Core, Disk Base in Polished Aluminum or Powder Coating, Stainless Steel Cross-Base in Polished Stainless Steel or Powder Coating
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.
