pacha lounge chair with armrest

Design Pierre Paulin, 1975
Metal Base, foam, upholstery
Made in Denmark by Gubi

Iconic designer Pierre Paulin’s vision was to create a sensation of 'sitting on clouds'. Pacha was ahead of its time when it was launched in the 1970s and the design was the result of extensive research into the notion of comfort. Today it is again setting trends. It has attracted a lot of attention from GUBI aficionados, as its low, plump style gains popularity fifty years on.

Achieving such a rounded organic form with cut foam and then upholstering it smoothly requires a special sewing technique and results in a highly crafted piece of furniture. The structured softness of the Pacha Collection rewards the sitter with relaxation akin to sitting on the clouds that inspired it. The Ottoman started out as a footstool but is so comfortable that it can be used as a seat in its own right.

The Pacha Lounge Chair is small yet very comfortable. Taking up very little floor space, the Pacha Collection can be mixed and matched in different combinations to suit the size of the interior space.

French furniture designer Pierre Paulin (1927-2009) was known for the sought-after classics resulting from successful collaborations with Thonet and Artifort: the Mushroom (1959), Tongue (1963) and Ribbon (1966) chairs. Today, his designs can be found in contemporary art and design collections around the world, from the Museum of Modern Art, New York, to the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, and the Centre Pompidou in Paris.

The Pacha Lounge Chair works as part of living space seating combinations or to create a cozy corner in combination with the Pacha Ottoman. The modular option offers endless combinations: The added armrest provides even more support, allowing one to lean with ease to either side. There is also a choice between a fixed or swiveling base.

25.6" h | 39.4" w | 33.5" d | seat: 13.7" h | 63.9 lbs.

Pierre Paulin

Born in Paris and grew up in Laon, Pierre Paulin (b. 1927) acquired a passion for creating from his great uncle, sculptor Freddy Stoll and another uncle, car designer George Paulin. This experience led to studying stone carving and clay modeling at the Ecole Camondo in Paris in the early fifties, where he began designing furniture for Thonet with concern for simplicity and use of sensuous curves. In 1958, he became the designer for Artifort, where he created a series of sculptural chairs with an inner structure of steel tubing, covered in foam and fabric. 1968 to 1972 proved to be significant years for Paulin, from collaborations with Le Mobilier National to many important government commissions, including furniture and interiors for President Pomidou at the Elysee Palace in Paris, and assisting development of the Louvre’s Denon wing. He also designed home appliances.
