Legendary French designer Pierre Paulin originally designed the Pacha Chair in 1975. Paulin designed the chair in harmony with the changing design style of its period, replacing the austerity of post-war design with a new, vigorous approach.
Paulin managed to give a real elegance to the rounded forms of the Pacha Chair by finding the perfect proportions, raising it lightly on its base and tracing in the foam and upholstery with stitching lines inclined inwards. Through pieces like the Pacha Chair, Pierre Paulin pioneered low-level living; a modern way of living and sitting on the floor, by getting rid of chair legs.
Pierre Paulin was born in 1952, Pierre Paulin's first designs caught the attention at the
Thonet firm through which he discovered and mastered new materials in the manner
of the American designers Eames, Saarinen and Bertoia. At once sculptural and rigorously functional, Pierre Paulin's studied
forms cradle the body in perfect harmony. A man of the future, Paulin scattered
his path with poetic objects that were ahead of their time and whose rediscovery
more than 30 years later inspire admiration.
