Xavier Pauchard was one who understood raw materials and designed his iconic Marais A Chair (aka Tolix Chair) out of galvanized steel, using a construction process that required 100 manual operations. Since it's conception in 1934, the famed bistro chair design is more popular than ever, and can be seen in homes, cafes, restaurants and offices all over the world. Now, over 80 years later, The Bastille Cafe Stacking Chair is manufactured using the same techniques applied in the original construction, built to virtually the same specification and is available in more colors than ever before. From metallic finishes like silver & copper, to trendy pop hues, coated in zinc for protection against rust, the Bastille is well situated in any indoor or outdoor space.
Inmod's Bastille Cafe Armchair is an accurate reproduction of Jean Pauchard's iconic Marais A56 Armchair, and is available in an industrial-inspired gunmetal finish. Its classic finish, as well as its construction techniques remain faithful to those of the original. Ideal for residential and commercial use, the Bastille Cafe Armchair is a stylish win-win for homes, cafes & dining establishments alike.
In 1934, Xavier Pauchard designed what would become the quintessential industrial cafe chair, the Marais A Chair (manufactured by Tolix), and what was originally introduced into Parisian cafes, restaurants and offices, over time became one of the most recognized icons in 20th century mainstream design worldwide. Xavier passed away in 1948, and his son Jean, following in his footsteps, designed the Marais A56 (named for the year he designed it). While his father brought galvanized steel furniture manufacturing to France decades before, through an intricate process comprised of 100 manual operations, Jean's creation was an armchair to compliment his father's. Over 80 years after the introduction of the Marais concept, both chairs have enjoyed worldwide recognition and a recent growth in popularity, thanks to a global revival of appreciation in industrial design & decor. If the times prove one thing, it's that the Marais Chairs are timeless.
The Bastille Cafe Stacking Chair (Weathered Wood Seat) re-imagines the world's favorite metal bistro chair design with the addition of a contoured wood seat which adds a layer of support and rustic styling. The wood seat improves upon the function and appeal of an already highly versatile design, especially when used within an indoor dining space. The weathered appearance of the wood adds warmth and character to its industrial design, making the Bastille an even more appealing choice as an all-purpose dining, side or stacking chair.
