In 1958 Pierre Paulin became the designer for the furniture company Artifort. Pierre Paulin went on to design a series of sculptural chairs that were, in his words; “simply functional, friendly, fun and colorful.” The Easy Chair is such a chair, based on the 1960 design, the ‘Orange Slice’ chair.
Pierre Paulin designed the ‘Orange Slice’ chair with two completely identical shells which sat on a chrome frame. The shells are designed to sit on a slant, this angle provides an amazingly comfortable seat that allows one to easily shift positions and always remain snugly content. As a testament to its incredible comfort and appealing design, the ‘Orange Slice’ chair has been in constant production at Artifort since 1960.
Since 1997, Modernica has been building the Easy chair. Handcrafted by our master builders, each chair follows strict adherences to the original design with regards to dimensions, frame construction, and materials — making this significant piece an affordable luxury.
