F444by Pierre Paulin
innovatory and typical sixties, this design of Pierre Paulin. A delightful crawl in a harness leather seat. The armchair is still part of the collection of Artifort. As a freelancer, Pierre Paulin was bound with this company for some time. It was a furtile cooperation. And still Artifort uses designs from the sixties and seventies in its regular collections. For Artifort, he made his most innovative designs. Especially his Ribbon chair made quite a fuss in the sixties. You can say that he was a prequel of Ron Arad, who also started designing bended furniture later on.
Copies with white leather are very rare. The natural leatherer version was much more standard. In designbooks there is often referred to the Butterfly (F675) armchair. This also is a design of a harness leather seating, only the chair is much more complicated then the F444.
