Derive 2

Designer: Pierre Paulin for Ligne Roset

To celebrate his 60th birthday in 1985, Claude Pompidou presented her friend Pierre Boulez with a rocking armchair, which she had commissioned from Pierre Paulin. Working with Paulin's original drawings, Ligne Roset has decided to put this rocking chair - originally a private commission of which only two pieces were ever made - into production for the very first time. Its name, 'Dérive 2', was chosen in homage to Pierre Boulez, being the name of one of his musical works. The harmonious shape of its rocking structure subtly evokes the musical sphere, harp or diapason.
To reinforce its warm, domestic character and to bring it yet closer to its Scandinavian inspiration, Ligne Roset chose to make the structure in anthracite-stained wood and to associate this with a comfortably padded seat and back. The overall effect is one of light, fluid, elegant lines which are evocative of movement at the very first glance, even if the chair itself is immobile.

Available in a range of fabric options.
