"A chair should be more than simply functional. It should be friendly, fun and colorful." Pierre Paulin once said. The Pierre Paulin Orange Slice Chair, originally designed in 1960, is a timeless piece that still looks fresh today. Anyone who sees several Slice chairs together cannot fail to be touched by the playfulness fo the composition.The Slice Chair is one of Pierre Paulin's most recognizable designs, and has the unique characteristic of showing several phases of "curl up" when viewed from different visual angles. In fact, the chair seems to change shape every time you look at it.
The chair's unique structure employs two perfectly identical shells wrapped in high-density foam that is supported by a high polished stainless steel frame work. With a chic contemporary look, the Paulin Slice Chair makes a great addition to any contemporary space.

About Pierre Paulin
Paulin studied stone carving and clay modeling at the Ecole Camondo in Paris. Pierre Paulin began designing furniture for Thonet in 1958, and later became the designer for Artifort where he created a series of sculptural chairs. Instead of sculpting in stone, he sculpted his ideas as a designer of furniture, and went on to create important iconic designs including the Mushroom stool, Little Globe, Groovy, Ben, and the Orange Slice Chair, which helped to shape contemporary furniture design.
