About

Created in 1927 by Xavier Pauchard, the A Chair met with worldwide success from the beginning. It has been imitated but never equaled! Before becoming part of the collections at the Vitra Museum, the MOMA, the Pompidou Centre and the highly renowned architect Le Corbusier’s Villa Savoye, the A Chair was part of «Le Normandie» ocean liner’s furniture in 1935, lined café patios and equipped hospitals, the American army and cities before settling in private homes. Still manufactured by hand in Burgundy in our workshop, just as with all of our furniture, the A Chair remains an icon in today’s design world. Available in steel for the Tolix Maison version, in stainless steel for the Tolix Outdoor version, the A Chair can also be found in perforated stainless steel, for a new and resolutely chic style. You can also use a Tolix cushion on A Chairs.

About The Maker

All merit goes to Xavier Pauchard (1880-1948) who was a pioneer of galvanisation in France. Shortly after World War 1, based in Autun, Burgundy, he found himself (a visionary and inventive entrepreneur) in charge of a flourishing manufacture of galvanised sheet-metal domesitc items, which at the time, embodied household comfort. It was in 1927 that he registered the trademark TOLIX, at the same time converting to the «production of chairs, armchairs, stools and metal furnitures». We owe the revival of the brand Tolix to Chantal Andriot. It was with passion and loyalty for the company that this, ex Financial Directrice, launched into the adventure, along with a handful of employees, and bought back Tolix. The only woman in a man’s world and with her knowledge she was able to give back a new vitality, in perpetuating the dual standards of quality and innovation to an industry skilled in the making of functional furniture Today this enterprise is endowed with the latest technology which accompanies it’s numerous inherited manual processes and equipment.
