Paula for Molteni&C


The Paula armchair enters the canon of iconic contemporary seating by providing a sense of movement and lightness within the space. For this new armchair, we were inspired by modernist furniture such as the Barcelona armchair by Mies Van Der Rohe - a contribution to the Art of Living that we have been developing over the past years with Molteni&C. We paid attention to the details and proportions of this armchair: the transposition of a decisive silhouette balanced by the lightness of the metal structure and the ingenious system of leather straps, which defines the seat, backrest, and cushions.

The key to Paula’s timelessness lies in its carefully developed proportions. With its cantilevered frame and suspended cushions, the Paula armchair has been designed to create a synthesis between the soft and inviting seat and the solid and robust structure of the base.

The armchair’s shape is defined by an innovative system of looping leather straps, which attach the seat and backrest to the metal frame. The leather straps, available in four shades - natural, tobacco, hazelnut, and mud green - provide a warm contrast to the matte, burnished, or sand metal.

The matching ottoman was conceived as a visual continuation of the armchair. Its base features the same finish in burnished or sand metal, and its cushion is attached with the same system of looping leather straps. Paula is a visually striking object that is both modern and elegant; a beautifully crafted piece of furniture that combines contemporary design with luxurious comfort.
