The Galerie Azzedine Alaïa, a wondrous space where the fashion designer shows contemporary art and design in a series of well-chosen exhibitions, has now set its spotlight on the designer Pierre Paulin in celebration of his 80th birthday. Paulin, whose pieces can be seen in such hallowed halls as the MoMA in New York, Paris's Fonds National d'Art Contemporain, Centre Georges-Pompidou and Musée des Arts Décoratifs, as well as the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, is a major figure on the design landscape of the second half of the 20th century and the start of the new millennium. Fittingly, this show highlights just what is striking and revolutionary in Paulin's pieces. With objects drawn from the holdings of three great collectors of Paulin's design work, Azzedine Alaïa, Carla Sozzani and Didier Krzentowski, the show explores the creator's boldly colored, rounded forms for seats and other objects, with their trademark foam stuffing and felt covering. This exhibition is also the occasion for a reedition of the Amphis armchair, from a 2005 design. Truly a fitting homage.
