France, 1927 – 2009
Stunning and original pair of F444 lounge chairs designed by Pierre Paulin and manufactured by Artifort in 1963. Back in the 1960s, when this chair was born, designers were all about trying new concepts. The F444 lounge chair is a great example of that spirit. Its shape isn’t just about looks; it’s designed to fit your body comfortably. And the way it’s built is pretty special too. The chairs have a strong steel frame covered with beautiful aged cognac leather. The high backrest gives you excellent support, making these chairs incredibly supportive. And even though they might look delicate, they’re actually very stable and not too heavy. The patina the original leather shows is truly remarkable and makes this pair of chairs highly desirable. There are no tears or holes in the leather and its still smooth. Marked with the Artifort metal tag on the black frame. Priced individually but sold in a set of 2, another one as a single one available as well.
Pierre Paulin is one of the greatest representatives of French design. He is known for his modern spirit and the alliance he has created between rigor and organic. He drew his inspiration and influences from studying Scandinavian furniture, Japanese styles and the work of the Eames couple. The furniture he created is characterised by real simplicity, functionality and durability.
The leather is reconditioned with a leather care product special for vintage leather. To give the leather some strength, color, and protection again after many years of usage.
