Groovy Lounge Chair
Groovy lounge chair, design by Pierre Paulin for Artifort with aluminum profile base available either anodised or coated; this is one of the most striking elements in this unusual and fun piece of furniture. Produced in 1972 it has remained popular as an icon of the 1970s avant-garde. The Groovy chair's modern and sleek curves, the original design and bright colors make it impossible to overlook. Groovy is exhibited at the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne.
Born in Paris in 1927, Paulin made his début in the 50's. Known for his designs and installations (TV, Thonet, Bertrand Faure, Disderot, Artifort), he brought modernity to the Elysée Palace for President Pompidou in 1971. He designed all the furniture for the official office of François Mitterrand, and renovated the dining room for Jacques Chirac. At the same time, he founded ADSA with two associates, working on industrial projects (Calor, Allibert, Stamp) and brand image (Air France) as well as fitting-out railway stations (Gare de Lyon, Gare de Versailles Rive Gauche).
