Pierre Paulin (1927-2009) was a French post-war designer who started his career by studying sculpture. But his study was not what influenced Paulin as he was a mediocre student. He claims himself to be a self-made designer. Paulin saw the importance of the social role of design and for this he looked at Nordic modernity and simplicity for inspiration. A great talent of Paulin was that he could envision the concepts of his furniture in 3D in his mind. Paulin was someone who researched his design thoroughly.
