Pierre Paulin for Artifort, sofa model '442/3', fabric upholstery, the Netherlands, 1962.
Pierre Paulin created with the sofa 442/3 a comfortable three-seater that shows elegant steel details. The thin squared steel legs run upwards into the armrest which are on the same height like the backrest. Three cushions offer great seating comfort. Pierre Paulin (1927-2009) was a French postwar designer who studied sculpture. But his study was not what influenced Paulin as he was a mediocre student and is a self made designer, so he claimed himself. 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.
