In the TV chair, one notes the influence of Charles Eames, particularly when one considers the chair presented by the latter at the MOMA in New York in 19540, at the exhibition, ‘Organic Design in Home Furnishings’.

But above all, one finds in the TV chair the seeds of all of Paulin’s subsequent works in terms of the construction of his pieces. In effect, the metal base is much more than just a base: it constitutes the true framework of the chair, from which springs all the support offered to the body. With the use of moulded foam and the fabric covering which dresses the seat and back like an item of clothing, prefiguring the approach which paved the way for the subsequent freedom of development in terms of form which abounded in the world of seating – such as the iconic Mushroom, Tulip, The Tongue or Ribbon Chair.

The use of foam and textiles made possible visual fluidity, a sculptural freedom of line – the seat/back profile of the TV chair
