Artifort F598 Groovy Armchair by Pierre Paulin M-Chair, Mid-Century Modern

$4,812.51

About the Item

Born in Paris in 1927, Pierre Paulin a created his best known pieces in cooperation with the Dutch manufacturer Artifort. The tongue chair, the ribbon chair, the tulip — to name but a few — all feature in museums such as the MOMA New York and Centre Pompidou Paris. Originally designed in the 1972, his famous F598 Groovy or M-Chair is by far his most iconic piece. Its compactness combined with great comfort and dashing looks made this chair one of the bestsellers of the 1970s. Being out of production today, made the Groovy even more sought after and collectable. The listed Groovy Chair is manufactured in the 1980s and is in wonderful condition. It is signed and numbered on the (original and very rare) brown base. I bought the chair as it is now, but I reckon it must have gotten a professional re-upholstery in an earlier stage of its life — as it still looks this great. Or not. I just don’t know, it just looks fantastic. General note: Shipping quotes as supplied by 1stdibs are only indicative.
