By Pierre Paulin
The Pacha Sofas are made by linking up multiple modules with an optional, easily removeable, armrest between each one for extra comfort.
Iconic designer Pierre Paulin’s vision was to create a sensation of ‘sitting on clouds’. A little ahead of its time in 1975, the modular Pacha Collection is finally coming into its own today as GUBI reissues this timeless and characterful collection.
Legendary French furniture designer Pierre Paulin bestrode the 1960’s and 70’s with his recognizable and innovative style that instantly revolutionized everyday furniture.
A joyful modernist, Paulin’s low-slung pieces provided a new laidback perspective on life and his forward-looking, eclectic and sculptural approach to furniture design instantly caught the mood of the swinging 60’s. The hedonistic, sinuous style of Paulin’s design also attracted the patronage of presidents Georges Pompidou and François Mitterrand, who asked him to redecorate parts of the Elysée Palace in the 1970’s and 80’s.
Carefully curated and intuitively iconic. That's been the spirit of GUBI since 1967. Rediscovering the heart of historical pieces and seeing how a contemporary vibe can help us write new chapters and find harmony in the eclectic.
