Pierre Paulin died on June 13 2009

 

We were sad to hear that Pierre Paulin died this Saturday at the age of 81 in Montpellier, south-east of France. He will remain in all our memories as one of the major French designers of the 20th century. He leaves us with great classics, most of them produced by the Dutch company Artifort - 'the Tongue', 'the Ribbon', 'the Oyster' and many others.

Pierre Paulin was also known for having created furniture for two presidents of the French Republic, Georges Pompidou and François Mitterand.
