A56 Armchair

[01]Description

Created in 1956 by Jean Pauchard, the A56 Armchair has become one of the great classics of 20th-century furniture. It was designed to meet the demands of terraces and cafes. The A56 Armchair is stackable. In the 1950s, 25 stacked units did not exceed 2.3 meters. It is available in a steel version, either in its classic form or raised by 5cm (A56+) for versatile use. It incorporates the same fundamentals as its predecessor, the Chair A. Every stage of its production relies on the craftsmanship of TOLIX's workshops: stamping, bending, brazing, and polishing. These unique gestures, which have earned TOLIX recognition as a Living Heritage Company, give our products a unique quality and an extra touch of soul. Like the Chair A, 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 perfectly reveals the curvature work, providing a streamlined vision of contemporary furniture. 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

Jean Pauchard, alongside his brother André, took over the leadership of TOLIX Manufacturing in 1948, following the sudden passing of their father and founder, Xavier Pauchard. Four years later, in 1952, the brothers decided to pursue different paths, leaving Jean in charge of the business. Unhesitant to draw from the family heritage while seeking innovation, Jean introduced the A56 armchair in 1956. This piece was directly inspired by his father's famous Chair A, and over half a century later, it remains one of the most iconic armchairs in the world of design. Under Jean's guidance, TOLIX diversified its product range, introducing new designs that, like the Chair A and the A56 armchair, combined functionality and aesthetics. In addition to preserving the brand's heritage, Jean Pauchard also succeeded in modernizing the company and expanding its international reach. His design sensibility and ability to anticipate changing consumer needs allowed TOLIX to establish itself as a key player in the metal design furniture sector. The brand continues to evolve, but Jean Pauchard's imprint remains indelible, just as significant as that of his father.
