a little more about pierre paulin, rdiat an international furniture show organized by kho liang le, pierre paulin (1927) made a considerable impression with a contemporary shell fauteuil. shortly after the show, he became a freelance designer for artifort. this marked the beginning of a long and fruitful collaboration. what makes his designs so distinctive is their striking sculptural shape, which earned paulin many prizes worldwide. His work remains timeless and progressive even today. artifort still includes many of paulin’s designs dating from the nineteen-sixties and seventies in its permanent collection. he also designed interiors for the french presidents pompidou and mitterrand in the elysée palace in paris. pierre paulin died on 13 June 2009 in a hospital in montpellier (france). the french president sarkozy honored him as “the man who made design an art”. in november 2009, oaulin was posthumously awarded the distinction of “royal designer for industry” (rdi).
