It is possible, for example, to create a 2 module shelving unit W 140 cm by juxtaposing two modules W 70 cm held together by 2 nylon linking-pieces each bearing Pierre Paulin’s stamp. Each shelf has notches cut into it, into which the vertical uprights of the structure are inserted: this elegant method of assembly reinforces the stability of the overall piece. The shelves rest on little steel wire hoops soldered onto the uprights. Structure in lacquered steel wire Ø 10 mm. Each module W 70 cm sits on 4 adjustable jack feet. The 3 module shelving unit comprises 3 modules W 70 cm, held together by linking-pieces and shelves W 210 cm. Shelves in 8 mm thick birch multi-ply finished in laminate with the wood edges visible. Internal dimensions of each ‘chest’: H 38 W 33.3 D 33.

Ligne Roset now brings us the steel wire shelving which Pierre Paulin designed in 1972. Minimalist, it marries the lacquer of its steel wire structure with the multi-ply used for its shelves. It is constructed around modules of W 70 cm which may be multiplied as desired.
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).
His pieces figure amongst the collections of numerous museums across the world, and various exhibitions have been dedicated to him in 2007/8. MOMA, New York has enlarged its collection of Paulin pieces.
