The A chair by Tolix is an absolute icon in interior design of all times. The model A chair has become an icon of industrial aesthetics. It’s unfailing popularity since 1934 has enabled to enter the Collections of the Vitra Design Museum, MOMA and the Pompidou Center. This mythical chair, crafted of sheet metal, has been assured by its "fool-proof" solidity, its unequalled lightness, its easy maintenance and its being inexpensive. Metalworker Xavier Pauchard not only brought the art of galvanizing steel to France but also took the process to the next level by creating the Marais A Chair (1934). The quintessential cafe chair, it was both elegant and robust enough to grace the decks of the S.S. Normandie ocean liner. It takes 100 manual operations to create a Tolix chair, and 80 years after the company was founded, the Tolix name is recognized worldwide as best-in-class furniture. “Xavier Pauchard’s Chaise A is a perfect synthesis created by a man possessed of an understanding of raw materials, and the tools used to work them,” said Serge Lemoine, former director of Musee d’Orsay, Paris. All Tolix furniture is still made in Autun, the same Burgundy town where the company first began. Slight surface abrasions and markings are characteristic of the material and part of its hardworking machine aesthetic. Stackable up to 10 high. Made in France.

Xavier Pauchard
Xavier Pauchard

French metalworker, Xavier Pauchard is celebrated for bringing the art of galvanizing steel to the furniture industry. His ground breaking, functional chair, stool and table designs are renowned for their stability, lightness and strength. Pauchard grew up surrounded by pine trees in Le Morvan, France. Despite the abundance of timber production around him, Pauchard turned his attentions to metalwork, pioneering new galvanizing techniques to prevent rust. He set up his own company in 1918 selling steel household items. Pauchard's father and grandfather were zinc roofers, and it was this connection that no doubt led the young Pauchard to experiment with different galvanization techniques. In 1907, he discovered that he could protect sheet metal from rusting by dipping it in molten zinc. After the First World War, Pauchard set about designing a range of household furniture that could be used indoors and out, whatever the weather. His products were universally popular in both homes and business such as cafés, factories, offices and hospitals.Today, Pauchard's designs have achieved worldwide iconic status and include the colourful Tolix A Chair, Tolix Bar Stool and Tolix Side Table.
