What is Tolix?

Good question. The word 'Tolix' isn't simply a made-up word for our collection. But if you've never heard of it before, you may be wondering what it means. The Tolix style was originally invented in 1934, in France. A French designer named Xavier Pauchard, who was actually a zinc roofer, came up with the concept. He discovered that sheet metal could be well-protected from rust by coating it in zinc. A decade later, Pauchard set up his own furniture factory manufacturing steel furniture. The brand Tolix was trademarked. Of course, it was a success as we still know and love it today. And so the Tolix chair was born! It took a few re-designs to perfect it but by 1956 the iconic version was created. The style really took off in cafes, breweries and even hospitals around France. Soon, the world would catch on too.
