Ribbon® '60s Lounge Chair and Ottoman - Artifort Ribbon Chair - Pierre Paulin Chair, color : Yellow.  Artifort Ribbon Chair by Pierre Paulin upholstered in Kvadrat Tonus 124 and with a silver grey base. This deep yellow color is one of our favorite upholstery choices from the Kvadrat collection. This warm and uplifting color makes the Ribbon Chair an inviting place to lounge in.

The Artifort Ribbon lounge chair is one of the most beautiful sculptural design chairs in our collection. This historically significant modern design icon was created by Dutch designer Pierre Paulin for Artifort in 1966. The Ribbon Chair continues to be made by Artifort in the Netherlands. The sculptural Ribbon Chair is one of the essential classics in the history of modern furniture design. Pierre Paulin was trained as a sculptor in Paris and used his own vision to create free-flowing chairs that transcend modernist sculptures. His Ribbon Chair is a beautiful example of applied art that complements any collection. The Ribbon is a clean, simple ergonomic space age form sculpted to fit the body. This beautiful modern chair can be used as a chaise lounge or accent chair in the living room or bedroom. It looks equally stunning in an office environment. The Pierre Paulin Ribbon chair is made from a metal frame with horizontal springs, covered with foam and stretch fabric and a lacquered pressed wood pedestal. An optional Ribbon Ottoman is sold separately.

The lacquered pressed wooden base is available in several RAL color options: white, black, red, light grey or silver grey.

We can assist you if you prefer a different upholstery. We can supply the Ribbon chair in any custom fabric you desire. Customers may send their own upholstery grade fabric to Stardust or choose from an endless array of upholstery options available from these manufacturers. We advise however to upholster the Ribbon Chair in Kvadrat Tonus. Other fabrics will cause a number of pleats to appear, which cannot be avoided.

in 1952, pierre paulin's first designs caught the attention at the thonet firm through which he discovered and mastered new materials in the manner of the american designers eames, saarinen and bertoia.  at once sculptural and rigorously functional, pierre paulin's studied forms cradle the body in perfect harmony. a man of the future, paulin scattered his path with poetic objects that were ahead of their time and whose rediscovery more than 30 years later inspire admiration.
