For the very first time, Pierre Paulin's 1971 design for seating for the private apartments of Claude & Georges Pompidou at the Elysée Palace is being put into large-scale production. Pumpkin is characteristic of Paulin's revolutionary style, as initiated at the end of the 1950's, and as its name suggests is evocative of a giant pumpkin, welcoming the user with its protectively voluptuous - and voluptuously protective - shell. Resisting its appeal is an impossibility! CONSTRUCTION Base and mid-section in polyether foam 30 kg/m3 - 3,0 kPa, resting on a thermoformed ABS base. COMFORT Seat and bucket-style enveloping back in moulded polyurethane foam 35 kg/m³ - 3.2 kPa with a 'comfort' layer in the same foam. MAKING-UP Covers may be removed by a professional. Cover quilted with 100 g/m² polyester on the seat/back, and polyether foam on the exterior of the mid-section. COVERS A monocolour model, which may be made up in either fabric or hide. Coloured wools chime perfectly with the spirit of Pumpkin.
