After his initial success at the Salon des Arts Ménagers de Paris in 1953, Pierre Paulin began collaborating with Thonet-France the following year, principally designing desks and chairs. It was then that he designed the 'CM 141' desk, which is being reproduced by Ligne Roset in 2008 under the name Tanis: its original design has been scrupulously respected, but the 'self-effacing' finishes of the era have been updated and enriched.
The writing surface is made from soft-touch, scratch-resistant FENIX laminate, in black to match the black lacquered steel base, whilst the 2 drawers are finished in natural walnut veneer
Materials: Top: Walnut Legs: Black Fenix Laminate Base (Circular Tubing)
Born in paris in 1927, Pierre Paulin has been in the scene since the 1950s, and is notably the one who introduced modernity to the Elysée Palace for President Pompidou in 1971. He has since designed for various recognised and influential brands and individuals. The subtle grandeur of his furniture designs, grounded in functionality characterises his work. His name is recognised internationally, and has had various exhibitions dedicated to him, including an enlarged collection of Paulin pieces by New York.
