PIERRE PAULIN "TONGUE CHAIR IN ORIGINAL KVADRAT FABRIC
Designed in 1967 for Artifort
Item # 807VPH12O 


The iconic chair designed by Pierre Paulin in 1967 for Artifort titled the “Tongue Chair”, the groundbreaking chair remains in the permanent collection of Moma (acc. no. 453.2008.1).  It was a statement piece that turned notions of a proper chair upside down, utilizing the newest materials to bring forward an entirely new creation.  The curved tubular metal frames were padded with polyurethane foam and upholstered in a stretchy jersey material.  The present chair retains an early and likely original fabric, remaining incredibly comfortable and enjoyable.

Measurements:  37 D x 34 W x 24 H; seat height is 8 H at the lowest point, 12 1/2 H at the highest point

Condition Report:
A few ink stains; a few small discolorations to original Kvadrat fabric.  Very comfortable and supportive.
