Pumpkin - Pierre Paulin

Pumpkin - Pierre Paulin

Pumpkin designed in 1971 by Pierre Paulin, at Ligne Roset. Pierre Paulin's 1971 design for seating for the private apartments of Claude & Georges Pompidou at the Elysée Palace is being put into large-scale production. Pumpkin is characteristic of Paulin's revolutionary style, as initiated at the end of the 1950's, and as its name suggests is evocative of a giant pumpkin, welcoming the user with its protectively voluptuous - and voluptuously protective - shell.
