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.
The Phantom Stacking Arm Chair blurs the lines between modern and Victorian. Its old-world medallion shaped back and traditionally styled contours is cleverly contrasted by an unmistakably modern sleekness that also blurs the lines between ornate and minimalistic. It is a genre-defying conversation piece that skillfully conforms to its surroundings. Its elegant translucent finish amicably reveals and reflects its environment while its refractive qualities accentuate the beauty of its own form.
The Phantom Stacking Arm Chair is constructed through way of a cutting edge manufacturing process in which the chair is created entirely from a single piece of injected-molded polycarbonate. Available in a spectrum of on-trend tones and pop colors, the Phantom is an aesthetically-versatile, fully-adaptive, conveniently stackable arm chair well-suited to living and dining spaces, banquet halls, restaurants and a wide variety of public spaces.
The Phantom Stacking Side Chair is a true conversation piece. Its baroque-style sophistication and medallion back is counterbalanced by its modern transparent finish, and the result is a beauty defined by juxtaposed opposites. It is produced using a technologically advanced and relatively newer process in furniture construction in which an entire chair is created from a single piece of injection-molded polycarbonate.
The Phantom Stacking Side Chair's genre-defying style offers a timeless appeal that blurs lines between modern and Victorian, between the simple and the ornate. Available in translucent smoke or clear to suit any dining space, banquet hall or public venue, its elegantly translucent body cleverly reveals and reflects its environment, yet accentuates its own contours.
