Archi is a reproduction of the CM 194 HD fireside chair and CM 195 HD armchair (designed by Pierre Paulin in 1955) which pays homage to their timeless design and the perfection of their ‘comfort curve’, which perfectly embraces the body of the sitter. The seat part appears to be suspended on its ethereal base. Here one finds, between the seat and feet, the inverse symmetry so beloved of Pierre Paulin. From all this he brings a nervous, aerodynamic modernity. The comfort is perfect: the generous slope of the seat, the ergonomic design of the curving seat-back which support the body precisely and yet gently thanks to the qualities of the Bultex foams used, and to the elastic webbed suspension on the seat and back. The high ear-shaped back allows the sitter to rest the head and shoulders.
