Mushroom F560 armchair designed by Pierre Paulin for Dutch company Artifort in the 1960s. Paulin began designing furniture in the 1950s for Thonet. He later became a designer for Artifort, where he created a series of sculptural chairs which featured interior frames made of steel tubing that were then covered with foam and fabric. Paulin’s design for the Mushroom chair was inspired by women’s swimming suits and the way they shape the body’s curves with seamless material. The chair has been featured in exhibitions around the world and is a part of the permanent collection of MoMa in New York. In the 1970s, Paulin was commissioned to design the private apartment of President George Pompidou in the Élysée Palace in Paris. This Mushroom F560 armchair is upholstered with the original dark brown fabric, and it is in excellent condition.
