big mushroom lounge chair f562
"A chair should be more than simply functional. It should be friendly, fun and colorful."
A design that is so clearly Artifort as the Big Mushroom, a classic like that belongs in the Artifort collection. Once launched as the F562, it's been re-launched as Big Mushroom. Soft, ample, inviting and supremely comfortable, the Big Mushroom is an eye-catching lounge that makes you just want to curl up and enjoy it to the fullest. Explicit, subtle and organic, this big brother of the Mushroom positively bursts with Artifort DNA.
Pierre Paulin studied stone carving and clay modeling at the Ecole Camondo in Paris in the early fifties where he began designing furniture for Thonet. 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. In 1968, Paulin collaborated with Le Mobilier National and received many important government commissions including furniture and interiors for the Elysee Palace in Paris. He also designed home appliances.
The Big mushroom comes standard with black plastic glides with the option of felt or metal glides. The family is complete by the F560 mushroom & mushroom junior chairs.
