Design by Pierre Paulin.
The French designer has managed to give a real elegance to the lounge chair with the rounded shapes of the Pacha armchair by finding the perfect proportions. Pierre Paulin explored the modern way of life that then came into vogue to sit on the floor, by omitting the chair legs and instead placing the chair on a platform.
With comfort as the constant starting point in his designs, the curvaceous, whimsical and organic shapes of the Gubi Pacha chair are designed to provide the user with both comfort and coziness. Looking as contemporary today as when it was first designed in 1975, the Pacha chair is an honest, functional piece of furniture that brings life and character to any interior setting.
Now also available in an outdoor version. Again, the boundaries have been shifted for this. The beautiful outdoor areas (garden, terrace, patio) require special seating to define spaces and create atmosphere. Now the distinctive comfort and distinctive shapes of the indoor collection are also available outside.
The outdoor series is designed in such a way that it is easy to stay between indoor and outdoor spaces.
Designed for durability, the Pacha outdoor collection features a specially developed membrane intermediate layer that is both water-repellent and breathable to ensure quick drying after the rain, while retaining the wonderful comfort of the iconic original. The base is constructed from moisture resistant plywood to provide enhanced protection in damp conditions and features a full stainless steel swivel mechanism.
A removable rain cover offers extra protection from the elements, so you can get back in the clouds once the rain clears.
The Pacha armchair by Gubi has a width of 77 centimeters, a depth of 85 centimeters and a height of 65 centimeters.

About the designer:
The legendary French furniture designer Pierre Paulin (1927-2009) sprinkled the sixties and seventies with his recognizable and innovative style that immediately revolutionized everyday furniture. He studied at the design school École Camondo in Paris, where his teacher urged him to participate in Marcel Gascoin's workshop. There Paulin adopted the Scandinavian aesthetic and gained a lot of insight into the role that design could play in society.
In the 1950s, Pierre Paulin began designing furniture himself and began experimenting with stretchy, stretchy fabrics that could be pulled over a chair's armature. He began successful collaborations with Thonet France and Artifort, the latter resulting in several iconic pieces such as the Mushroom, Ribbon and Tongue chairs, all of which have become popular design classics.
An upbeat modernist, Paulin's low-slung pieces offered a new laid-back perspective on life and his forward-thinking, eclectic and sculptural approach to furniture design immediately captured the vibe of the swinging 60s. 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 1970s and 1980s.
Widely recognized, today Pierre Paulin's innovative designs can be found in contemporary art and design collections around the world, from the Museum of Modern Art, New York to the Victoria and Albert Museum, London along with the National Center for Art and Culture Georges Pompidou in Paris.
