A gentlemen’s dialogue
by Anna Moldenhauer | 5/23/2019
Galerie Parisa Kind in Frankfurt/Main is showcasing works by designer Pierre Paulin for the first time in Germany, juxtaposing them to paintings by his long-term friend Christoph von Weyhe.
Unfortunately, he will never produce any more new designs, but his legacy contains many beautiful things, such as these armless lounge chairs, originally designed for the waiting room of the French Concorde aircraft after which they were named. They there
fore represent perfect seating for waiting situations, but in the past they have demonstrated their suitability for use in living rooms all over the world as well. Although the Concorde eventually disappeared from the Artifort collection, the lounge chair
is s till very popular among Artifort fans. This popularity, together with its characteristic appearance - without armrests - and the fact that it is so comfortable, is reason enough to bring this ‘old-timer’ back into the collection.
