Paulin Oyster in grey and red for Artifort

Paulin Oyster lounge chair, Artifort 1960s

Pierre Paulin exhibited this voluptuous, sculptural lounge chair at the World Fair Expo Brussels in 1958. This modernist piece immediately attracted the attention of Dutch Industrial designer Kho Liang Ie who worked as Creative director for Dutch furniture manufacturer Artifort. The sculptural chair (model Oyster catalogue no.157 ) became an iconic collection piece and was in collection from 1959-1979.

The listed Paulin Oyster, with its nickel-plated frame and almost floating shell, is from this original series. It is completely re-upholstered in a thick quality red and grey melange furniture fabric (Nevada by De Ploeg). The item has a great comfort, and relax seating. Eye-catching by design.

*We have another nickel plated frame in stock, which we can upholster in a fabric of choice.*

Size: W 90 x D 80 x H 88 cm, Seat height: H 36 cm
Quantity: 2
Condition:  re-upholstered

EUR 2.450,- as listed (In Nevada fabric)
EUR 2.200,- in Ploegwool fabric

DUTCH / NEDERLANDS: Pierre Paulin exposeerde deze grote Oyster fauteuil op de Wereld Tentoonstelling van Brussel (Expo) in 1958. Dit moderne en grote item trok meteen de aandacht van Kho Liang Ie, die op dat moment als Creatief Directeur van Artifort werkte. Paulin werd direct aangetrokken als ontwerper bij Artifort en ook de Oyster werd direct in de collectie van Artifort opgenomen, 1959-1979.

Deze grote hergestoffeerde Paulin Oyster met nikkelen frame is uit die eerste productie lijn. Het item is gestoffeerd in een fraaie rood – grijs gekleurde De Ploeg meubelstof (Nevada)
