Born to a French father and a Swiss-German mother, Pierre Paulin (1927 – 2009) grew up in France, under the inspiration of his two uncles. His paternal uncle, Georges Paulin, invented the Eclipse mechanical folding roof system and, working with Peugeot, Bentley and Rolls Royce, provided a role model for creativity in business. His great uncle Freddy Stoll was a sculptor and instilled in a young Paulin the notion that an object should be beautiful from every angle. Paulin considered himself a functionalist who added ‘two little drops of poetry’ to his work.
