Pierre Paulin (1927-2009), a 20th century French designer of wide-ranging influence, is best known for his designs for Artifort in the 1960s: the Mushroom chair (1959), the Concorde chair (1960), the Ribbon chair (1966), and the Tongue chair (1968). He was invited in 1970 to decorate the private apartments of George Pompidou in the Palais de l'Elysee, and to furnish the office of Francois Mitterand in 1983. His designs are included in major museum collections, including MoMA in New York, the Musee des Arts Decoratifs in Paris, and London's Victoria and Albert Museum.
