Xavier Pauchard, creator of the famous Tolix chair, was born in 1880 in the Burgundy region of France.
Boilermaker by trade, he discovered the technique of galvanising metal, which he then introduced to France. This revolutionary method allowed him to obtain very solid, and almost immune to any degradation, metal by plunging steel or iron into molten zinc.
Based on this discovery, he created his X Pauchard workshops where he designed a range of high quality and innovative metal furniture including chairs, stools and tables. Tolix furniture has since become a classic of industrial aesthetics and the famous A Chair can be found in modern art collections and museums such as the Museum of Modern Art and Pompidou Centre.
