Inmod's Bastille Bar Stool with Low Back is an elegantly styled, visually versatile seating solution with extreme charm. Inspired by the popularized Marais seating designs introduced by Xavier Pauchard in the 1930's, the Bastille Bar Stool with Low Back is intricately constructed of galvanized steel, so it is highly durable in heavy-use public spaces. It is available in an authentic gunmetal finish that features vintage-looking surfacing details (uniquely applied to each piece) as well as a clean sleek white powder-coated finish (which makes it great for outdoor use).
What originated in Parisian cafes and eating establishments over 80 years ago was so revolutionary for its time that Xavier's and his son Jean's designs eventually gained worldwide recognition and popularity growth through the 20th century. Today, they are more popular than ever due to their practicality and stylish diversity. The Bastille Bar Stool with Low Back celebrates everything that remains great today about the iconic Marais designs, providing industrially-inspired character, heavy-duty durability and unparalleled value.
Conceived originally as simple and functional yet beautiful modern design to serve the needs of everyone and every place, the Molded Plastic Eiffel Side Chair was originally molded from fiberglass, and manufactured later on from plastic. It has become a 20th century icon and has embedded itself into the design culture of the 21st century.
Inmod's Molded Plastic Eiffel Side Chair is an inspired reproduction that accurately replicates the molded form of the seat, the proportions of the eiffel-style wireframe base and sturdy yet lightweight sensibility of the original. Like the original, the Molded Plastic Eiffel Side Chair is constructed of fully recyclable polypropylene and a highly durable steel wire-base frame finished in chrome. Available with iconic-styled soft matte white and black seats, the Molded Plastic Eiffel Side Chair pays homage without compromising on quality, and offers a TRULY unbeatable value to everyone and every place.
The Marais / Tolix design has been interpreted in many ways through experimentation in materials, color and texture. The Bastille Upholstered Cafe Stacking Chair stays true to the original form and construction and features the addition of a comfortable padded seat, wrapped in a leatherette with an aged look and vintage styling, and is accented by a row of distressed brass-colored studs.
On the surface, the Bastille Counter Stool is sturdy and stylish with an industrial-chic sensibility. Below its rust-resistant galvanized steel surface, the Bastille is an accurately proportioned, premium quality reproduction of the Marais Counter Stool, designed in 1934 by Xavier Pauchard, as part of his iconic Marais seating collection. Mr. Pauchard is credited with having introduced galvanized steel furniture construction to France, and the Marais collection was considered revolutionary. The designs were extremely popular at the time and could be seen all over Paris in cafes, bistros and offices. They maintained relevancy throughout the remainder of the 20th century, and thanks to a revival of interest in industrial design, have even gained a new momentum of popularity in recent years.
The Bastille Counter Stool celebrates all of the unique qualities that made the original so great. Over 80 years after the debut of the Marais, the Bastille is constructed using the very same processes (which require 100 manual operations). Availability in a variety of metallic tones and on-trend pop colors broadens the Bastille's function within industrial-inspired and modern homes and public spaces alike. Its sturdy construction, wide variety of stocked options and value make the Bastille Bar Stool a perfect choice for bars, ice cream shops and restaurants.
