The sculptural softness of the Pacha Outdoor collection has always provided the sitter with a level of relaxation comparable to the clouds that inspired it. Now the comfort and distinctive aesthetics of the indoor collection are available outdoors. Its low profile - a rarity among outdoor seating - is sure to attract attention.
Pierre Paulin's first sketches for what was to become the Pacha collection were simple pencil outlines that looked like clouds. These forms became the basis for the Pacha Lounge Chair, defining a new spirit of the time. Without the constraint of legs, the Pacha heralded an era of low living, introducing a new way of lounging when it was launched in 1975.
The popular Pacha Lounge Chair has been joined by a number of other Paulin models, including a version with armrests, the Pacha Ottoman and the Pacha Sofa - available in modular configurations. All have been revisited and reinvented for this outdoor collection. With a small footprint, the Pacha collection can be grouped into different combinations to suit the scale of the outdoor space as well as the style and atmosphere of the venue.Built to last
Designed to last, the Pacha outdoor collection features a specially developed water-resistant and breathable midsole membrane that ensures quick drying after exposure to rain while maintaining the forgiving comfort of the iconic original. The base is made from moisture-resistant plywood to offer added protection in wet conditions and includes a full stainless steel swivel mechanism. A removable rain cover offers additional protection from the elements, so that as soon as the rain clears, you can sit amongst the clouds again.

Legendary French furniture designer Pierre Paulin (1927-2009) bestrode the 1960’s and 70’s with his recognizable and innovative style that instantly revolutionized everyday furniture. He studied at the École Camondo design school in Paris, where his teacher urged him to join Marcel Gascoin’s workshop. There, Paulin took in Scandinavian aesthetics and gained great insight in the role that design could play in society.
Through the 1950’s Pierre Paulin moved on to design furniture on his own and he began to experiment with stretchy, extensible fabrics that could be drawn across a chair’s armature. He started successful collaborations with Thonet France and Artifort, where the latter resulted in several iconic pieces such as the Mushroom, Ribbon and Tongue chairs, all of which have become sought-after design classics.
A joyful modernist, Paulin’s low-slung pieces provided a new laid-back perspective on life and his forward-looking, eclectic and sculptural approach to furniture design instantly caught the mood of the swinging 60’s. The hedonistic, sinuous style of Paulin’s design also attracted the patronage of presidents Georges Pompidou and François Mitterrand, who asked him to redecorate parts of the Elysée Palace in the 1970’s and 80’s.
Widely recognized, Pierre Paulin’s innovative designs can today be found in contemporary art and design collections around the world, from the Museum of Modern Art, New York to the Victoria and Albert Museum, London along with the National Centre for Art and Culture Georges Pompidou in Paris.
