(2022) Nothing like a good solid plastic with it's smooth shiny-as-hell surfaces for me to draw. I like the minimalism of this piece, it's soft green hue and light refection gives me a relaxed feeling - that, along with it's "blooming" tulip suggestion.
One of the most beautiful organic chairs in ABS plastic by French designer Pierre Paulin and produced by Boro Belgium. A major exhibition on the works of Pierre Paulin was held in 2016 at the Centre Pompidou in Paris. Originally made as outdoor furniture in 1972 this 8810 model flower chair is now a very rare and sought after iconic piece of plastic design history. Due to the oil crisis that hit Europe in the early 1970s the prices to produce plastics became too expensive and the mass production of injected moulded plastic designs stopped.
Pierre Paulin was a French furniture designer and interior designer, born in 1927. His uncle Georges Paulin was a part-time automobile designer and invented the mechanical retractible hardtop, who was later executed by the Nazis in 1941 as a hero of the French Resistance.
Framed within a white shadow box frame with a floated mount and 2 or 3.5 inch reveal. With museum grade UV fitering plexiglass.
This is my favorite way to frame, the white wood is simple and clean and the shadow box/floated mount makes the paper appear floating, not touching the back board nor glass.
All framing is by the great team at Tribeca Print Works in NYC.
