Description

The armchair A56 by Tolix, an icon of industrial aesthetics for almost a century, has made it through all times and styles, and become a classic in our collective memory. Incredibly popular since 1934, this chair has even been in collections in Design museum, MoMa and Centre Pompidou. What an honour and international success of this “living heritage”, which is an illustration of the French art of living! With its 1930’s – 1950’s design, the armchair A56 is not only solid and extremely light, but also stackable and space-saving. Its uncluttered but also practical look is the key to such success. It was present on the liner Normandie already in 1935 and on pathways in front of the International Exposition of Arts and Technology in 1937, and in a number of terraces and café in the fifties before finally getting into domestic settings. The metal Tolix armchair has significantly marked the history of design. All the credits go to Xavier Pauchard, its designer, who used metal sheets and zinc for the first time in order to produce series of furniture, which makes the Tolix chair the first industrial French chair. Nowadays, the company employs high-performance-machines that are of help during numeral manual operations. Every single chair is thus unique and has a Tolix signature. Tolix has certainly deserved the label “Company of living heritage” from the French Ministry for Economy, Finances and Industry in 2006. Armchair A56, made of raw steel sheets with high-gloss colourless varnish, has not been galvanized and cannot therefore be used outdoors. If looking for a chair for both indoor and outdoor use, please check the galvanized version. This version with transparent varnish makes the welding points visible, which gives the chair a touch of handicraft and highlights the raw aesthetics of this product.
