Pierre Paulin for Artifort, pair of 'Butterfly' chairs model F675, metal and leather, The Netherlands, design 1953, manufactured 1960s
These easy chairs in original bright colored leather is designed by French designer Pierre Paulin for Artifort, a Dutch furniture manufacturer. The tubular frame is thin and geometric. The beautiful leather seating and backrest are solely attached to the frame, which results in a comfortable seat as the leather can form itself to the body. The leather shows an admirable patina that contrasts wonderfully with the metal frame.
Pierre Paulin (1927-2009) was a French furniture designer, influenced by the Scandinavian aesthetic, as well as by American prefabrication design. Important is his background in sculpting and stone carving which is the reason why his designs are often opulent and expressive. In 1954 he started a collaboration with Thonet. From 1958 onwards he started to work with Artifort who up to this date produce many of his designs.
