Dos à Dos Louvre was designed by Pierre Paulin in 1967, but this year, it was reworked by LaCividina. Paulin created the original design of this unusual seat for the Louvre museum, where it can still be found today. 50 years later, LaCividina has presented a fresh take on the Dos à Dos Louvre concept using typical 1970s manufacturing techniques. It is a timeless seating solution thanks to the simple, effective design and the functional, stylish curves.

The elastic seat webbing in conjunction with memory foam padding of varying densities gives compactness and flexibility to the piece. In addition, the seat has a metal core that makes it suitable for even very heavy use. Dos à Dos Louvre is shaped around the curves of the body and the seats can be used individually or lined up in limitless numbers to form benches.
