The Molded Plastic Rocker is a stylish reproduction that accurately preserves the character and beauty of the modern classic Molded Plastic Rocker (aka RAR) and replicates each proportion, finish and detail skillfully and with acute attention to detail and quality. The molded shell chair concept was introduced at the International Competition for Low-Cost Furniture at the MoMA in 1948. This iconic design allowed for the creation of organic shapes that were fresh and new in the world of furniture, and these designs could be mass-produced, ultimately fulfilling their desire to make quality modern design affordable.
The Molded Plastic Rocker (RAR) was adapted from an earlier version that was constructed of fiberglass. The fiberglass rocker was in fact adapted from a stationary armchair that was introduced as part of the original shell chair collection which debuted at the MoMA. The addition of the rocker base and the recognition it received is a true testament as to how versatile the shell concept was and still is. One of the most distinguished rocking chair designs of the last 100 years, and without a doubt, one of the greatest contributions to mid-century modern design. Now more stylishly relevant than ever, this iconic design has become a mainstay in modern spaces both in the home and in public venues.

Inspired by the Marais A56 by Jean Pauchard, this accurately modeled replica is individually finished in an elegantly antiqued copper-like powder coat, giving each piece a rustic charm & character all its own, taking this iconic design to new heights of style.
Named for the year it was introduced, the Marais A56 was created in honor of his father's revolutionary contribution to industrial Parisian design, the Marais A Chair (by Tolix). Built on the same frame, Jean's design featured the addition of armrests, which filled a void and added functionality to an already hugely popular design. Whether the Pauchards knew it or not, the Marais family of seating would go on to become synonymous with industrial design and arguably become the most recognized of metal cafe chairs worldwide. The Bastille Cafe Stacking Armchair (Antique Copper) is an accurately produced replica that celebrates the original manufacturing techniques that Xavier Pauchard pioneered in 1934 (a production process that requires 100 manual operations). The Bastille's antiqued powder-coated finish adds a layer of vintage styling and outdoor suitability. It's heavy-duty construction & quality is authentic and caters to both residential & commercial environments and provides a truly unbeatable value.
One of the most recognizable metal cafe chairs ever designed originated in France in 1934, and quickly became a favorite among Parisian bistros, offices, clinics (and even on board the Normandie). Xavier Pauchard tapped into something when he conceived the Marais A / Tolix Chair in the early 20th century. So much so, in fact, that over 80 years after its debut in France, it is has grown in popularity to become a world-wide staple of industrial seating. The Bastille Cafe Stacking Chair (Antique Copper) is an accurate replica, produced using the same production processes & built to virtually the same specifications as the original. The antique copper adds bold character that strikes a stylish balance between industrial and rustic vintage.
The Bastille Cafe Stacking Chair is the quintessential industrial bistro chair, and is an inspired reproduction of the classic Marais A (Tolix) Chair, by Xavier Pauchard. What originated in the Parisian cafes, restaurants and establishments in 1934 has become one of the most recognized and widely used seating solutions in the world because of its versatile function and stylish appeal. Revolutionary for it's time, the Marais was constructed using a process comprised of 100 manual tasks. Over 80 years later, our Bastille Cafe Stacking Chair has replicated these techniques and is built to the same specifiations as the original. Suitable for indoor & outdoor use in virtually any environment, the Bastille offers strength, style and sophistication. Its antique red finish adds warmth and character to a classic industrial icon.
The Bastille Cafe Stacking Armchair (Antique Turquoise) offers a uniquely vintage take on a timeless classic.

Surface detail variation gives each piece its own industrial-rustic character and the powder-coated finish makes the chair suitable for outdoor use.
We often wonder if Jean & Xavier knew how their contributions would impact design in the 20th and 21st centuries. When Xavier introduced the Marais A Chair in 1934, he had also introduced galvanized steel furniture making to the world. Shortly after its birth, it was adopted by cafes, restaurants, hospitals and offices all over France due to its solid construction and stylish versatility. In 1956, eight years after Xavier's passing, his son Jean introduced an updated version that addressed the original's single limitation. Jean's A56 was built on the same frame and included a stylish curved back with arms, breathing new life, functionality and appeal into what had already become a hugely popular design. The Bastille embraces and stays true to the original production process (one that requires 100 manual operations). From its authentic look, rustic feel and commercial-grade durability, the Bastille offers vintage elegance, extreme durability and practical function in both homes and heavy-use public spaces.
