Tolix Fauteuil A56 Armchair. In 1907 Xavier Pauchard succeeded in protecting sheet metal from rust by dipping it into molten zinc. Galvanization was born, and with it a new industry.
The Tolix factory in Burgundy produced many household items, including the 1934 A chair. In 1956, his son Jean designed the A56 armchair.
Its success lies in its practicality, ideally suited to bistro culture: 25 stacked chairs stand only 2.3m high. The chairs mark a crucial stage in the story of design. Seat height: 44cm. Seat width: 38cm. Sold in packs of 2 or 4 armchairs.
