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.
In the TV chair one sees the influence of Charles Eames, especially when one thinks of the chair presented by the latter at the MOMA, New York in 1940 as part of the ‘Organic Design in Home Furnishings’ exhibition.
Foam and fabric make for visual fluidity, a sculptural freedom of line – the profile of the seat/back of the TV chair traces with finesse the contours of a boomerang of almost perfect symmetry – at the same time as remarkable comfort, supported by the suspension of steel wires on springs. The rigour of the metal structure, apparent in the one-piece chair base, disappears completely into the seat and back, the soft, sensual, organic, welcoming and ultra-comfortable padding of which anticipates a world which wants to turn its back on post-war privations and, several years later, declare its desire to ‘enjoy without restriction’.
