This volume of  “Les Cahiers” collection presents the history of the Anneau siège, Pierre Paulin’s final creation for Ligne Roset, shortly before his death in June 2009.

The book pays tribute to this designer of immense talent, this astonishingly young spirit in an eightyyear-old, this life-long creator of new shapes. As Michel Roset reminds us in his foreword, "Paulin always wanted his creations to be available to the greatest number, for the sensual and aesthetic pleasure of all". It is a philosophy exemplified beautifully by the Anneau seat.

Text in English and French by Elisabeth Védrenne, art critic.

In the limited edition, (100 copies), each copy comes with a reproduction of an original drawing by Pierre Paulin, and representing the Anneau seat. Every drawing is numbered.
