[01]Description

The One and Only A Chair by TOLIX: The Original, an icon of French design. Conceived by Xavier Pauchard from 1927 to 1935, this metal chair has had multiple lives and identities. Originally galvanized and rugged, it mellowed over the years and adopted more contemporary colors from the early 2000s. Due to its lines, functionality, and durability, it has been globally recognized and embraced, perhaps even a bit too much, including by counterfeiters. For almost a century, every A Chair that has emerged from TOLIX workshops has been crafted by hand by artisans passing on a unique expertise in metalworking, involving stamping, bending, brazing, and polishing. These distinctive gestures, which earned TOLIX recognition as a Living Heritage Company, give our products a unique quality and an extra touch of soul. So, if you want to acquire a piece of French industrial heritage, hesitate no more and choose the Original. TOLIX has decided to offer it in only three finishes that only TOLIX teams can achieve with such a degree of perfection. A glossy finish in pure white that harmoniously reveals the curves of this icon. A polished raw steel finish highlighting the unique hand of our artisans enhanced by a varnish. Finally, the historic galvanized finish, which only TOLIX still offers as a tribute to Mr. Pauchard, ensuring your product can withstand all climates and stand the test of time by your side.

[05]Designer

Xavier Pauchard, born in 1880 in Burgundy, embodies creative genius and a deep passion for metal. As the son of a roofer-tinsmith and the grandson of a coppersmith, he was destined to work with this material. In 1927, this visionary Burgundian founded the 'TOLIX' manufacturing company and introduced a revolution in France: hot-dip galvanization, a process that ensures the durability of metal and prevents rust by bathing it in molten zinc. Under his leadership, the iconic Chair A was born, a symbol of craftsmanship and industrial design. This chair, made from a single folded sheet of metal, was quickly embraced by French cafes and institutions, bearing witness to TOLIX's innovation and craftsmanship. But Pauchard didn't stop there. His company produced a diverse range of furniture that was both elegant, functional, and robust, each bearing the mark of his boldness and ingenuity. Through his creations, Xavier Pauchard not only shaped the history of French industrial design but also left an indelible legacy for future generations. His influence endures, and his genius lives on through every piece from the TOLIX Manufacturing.
