The 1958 Moulin chair family were some of Paulin's first commercial pieces exploring Mid-Century Modern aesthetics. In 2023 Artifort is enriching the Moulin chair family with the introduction of model CM190: Moulin Lounge.

Moulin Lounge is an elegantly minimalist armchair combined with modern comfort. It is recognisable by its slender steel frame connecting the shell of the seat, the backrest and the optional armrests. 


With a clever design that uses minimal material, the Moulin Lounge exudes elegance and minimalism. The seat, backrest, and armrests are formed using a single mold, eliminating material wastage. This economically responsible design pays tribute to the efficiency aimed for at the time of its inception. With upholstery featuring a zipper, the Moulin Lounge is easy to reupholster. This feature simplifies giving the armchair a new look and extends its lifespan.

The Moulin Lounge is not just a piece of furniture; it's also a cultural symbol. Its reissue not only preserves the aesthetics of the past but also acknowledges and enhances its cultural value. This contributes to the recognition and residual value of the armchair as a timeless design icon.

Pierre Paulin (1927) made a considerable impression with a contemporary shell fauteuil, at an international furniture show organised by Kho Liang le. Shortly after the show, he became a freelance designer for Artifort. This marked the beginning of a long and fruitful collaboration. What makes his designs so distinctive is their striking sculptural shape, which earned Paulin many prizes worldwide. His work remains timeless and progressive even today. This is not form for form’s sake but applied design. With comfort as the constant starting-point. Artifort still includes many of Paulin’s designs dating from the nineteen-sixties and seventies in its permanent collection. His work can be admired in museums throughout the world.
