Born in Paris in 1927, made his début in the 50’s, known for his designs and installations (TV, Thonet, Bertrand Faure, Disderot, Artifort), he brought modernity to the Elysée Palace for President Pompidou in 1971. He designed all the furniture for the official office of François Mitterrand, and renovated the dining room for Jacques Chirac. At the same time, he founded ADSA with two associates, working on industrial projects (Calor, Allibert, Stamp) and brand image (Air France) as well as fitting-out railway stations (Gare de Lyon, Gare de Versailles Rive Gauche).

MOMA, New York has enlarged its collection of Paulin pieces.
SINCE 2017, JORIS POGGIOLI IMAGINES HIS VERY OWN, SCULPTURAL FURNITURE COLLECTIONS, GIVING PRIVILEGE TO THE FORM AND HIGHLIGHTING THE POWER OF THE MATTER.
ARCHITECT AND INTERIOR DESIGNER, JORIS POGGIOLI’S MAIN INSPIRATIONS COME FROM HIS FRENCH-ITALIAN ROOTS. THE FRENCH ELEGANCE AND SOPHISTICATION RESONATE WITH THE ITALIAN SUBTLETY AND ECCENTRICITY, CREATING THE PERFECT SYMPOSIUM OF THE TWO CULTURES.
IN THE DESIGN WORLD, EVERY LINE IS SYMPTOM OF THE DEEPEST PERSONAL RESEARCH, WHICH URGES LIBERTY, DISCIPLINE AND TIME FOR CAPTURING DAILY LIFE IMPULSES AND PUTTING THEM AT THE MIND’S MERCY. THE [AUTO EDITION] ALLOWS TO GLOBALLY OVERSEE EACH STAGE OF THE CREATION PROCESS, FROM THE DRAWING TO THE MATERIAL SOURCING, IN WHICH HE PARTICULARLY FOCUSES, TO THE MANUFACTURING STEP, WHICH IS CLOSELY FOLLOWED FOR GUARANTEEING THE BEST RESULTS.
JORIS POGGIOLI’S STRONG ARCHITECTURAL VISION ALLOWS HIM TO CREATE TIMELESS OBJECTS IN WHICH THE FORM PREVAILS ON EVERYTHING ELSE. THEREFORE, HIS PIECES FIND THEIR PLACE IN COUNTLESS DECORATIONS, FROM HISTORICAL TO CONTEMPORARY. THE POWER OF FORM, WHETHER SIMPLE OR ELABORATE, STANDS OUT AND OFTEN FLIRTS WITH SCULPTURE. IN THIS SPIRIT, EACH PIECE SIMULTANEOUSLY SELF-STANDS INDEPENDENTLY, BUT PERFECTLY FITS IN ALONG WITH THE OTHERS.

Vladimir Kagan creates his designs with upholstery, wrought iron, cast aluminum and especially organically sculpted wood in works that became hallmarks of his career. Kagan introduces his first signature furniture collection called ‘Tri-symmetric’ in 1949. In 1958 Kagan designs “capricorn”, an indoor-outdoor iron collection through W&J Sloan. After the partnership with Dreyfus dissolves in 1960, Kagan continued exploring fresh forms and materials. In 1964, Kagan redesigns the Monsanto House of the Future at Disneyland, in California. In 1970 the first Omnibus collection is introduced. His company continued to function under the new name Vladimir Kagan Designs. On May 19, 1972 a fire destroyed Kagan’s entire factory in New York. In 1974 Kagan designs the executive suite for Prudential Insurance Co. in Newark, New Jersey.

Mario Marenco graduated in architecture in 1957, in Naples, and then obtained research grants in Stockholm and Chicago. In 1960 he opened his own architecture and design studio: Studio DEGW, based in Rome. He has collaborated with the most important Italian car manufacturers for the realization of their exhibition stands.
Before his television debut in 1972 with Cochi and Renato and Enzo Jannacci in the program Il buono e il cattivo, he achieved success in 1970 with the radio program Alto gradimento written with Giorgio Bracardi and conducted by Arbore and Boncompagni themselves. It was Mr. Ramengo in L’altro domenica, a freaky reportage correspondent who shouted “Carmine!” after each reportage. He was the protagonist of the programs Odeon and The Egg and the Cube. In the eighties he participated in several television programs, including Under the Stars (by Magalli, Minellono, Marenco and Boncompagni) where it was produced in Prof. Aristogitone and in several other sketches, and Back all! where he played the character of the child Riccardino.
He has sporadically been an actor for the cinema, bringing his spots to the big screen, but he has also been directed by Dino Risi in a couple of television works. He is the author of humorous books published by Rizzoli, including The Scarecrow in the Swill, Our Special Envoy, Los putanados, Stupefax and The Notebook of Poems.
With The Flag Halyard Chair, Wegner acknowledges the early modernists such as Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe, and Marcel Breuer, and proves that he too masters designs in chromium-plated steel pipes. Despite this gesture, the chair is still decidedly Wegner. The chair’s surfaces are made of plaited flag halyard with the longhaired sheepskin softening the industrial sharpness of the steel, adding comfort.
Although the appearance of the Flag Halyard Chair seems rather futuristic, the basic idea was conceived on a hot summer afternoon in rather trivial circumstances. While the kids were playing in the shallow waters along the beach, Wegner was digging himself into the sand building a comfortable chair to enjoy the holidays. Back in the summerhouse Wegner made the first sketches using the seating angles that he had conceived on the beach.
pp225 comes with pillow straps in the same leather as the neck pillow, and a white or colored sheepskin can be selected.
All sheepskin are produced in Iceland, and are a bi-product of food production. All sheep have lived in the open fields, and hides are processed without the use of chrome.
Atem is a tribute to transparency. The modular structure, essential and geometric in every detail, leaves no room for superfluous. Each material is associated with a compositional element suggested by its features. The steel mesh, almost impalpable, lays bare the nature of the object, creating a veiled playful transparency.
Who better than Luis Mariano to embody a leisurely, carefree – and Basque – way of life. The Mariano Daybed is an invitation to relaxation. The light, tubular structure draws the focus to the solid walnut frame. The traditional webbing under the cushion and the down ticking in both the cushion and bolster provide exceptional comfort.
