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.
Inmod adds vintage charm to a timeless classic.

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 Cafe Rectangular Dining Table is inspired by Jean Prouve's iconic EM Table, which debuted in the early 1950's as part of a prehab housing project in France, called "Maison Tropique". The EM Table was defined by a uniquely styled base consisting of four tapered steel legs which were angled slightly outward to create a symmetrical yet juxtaposed stance, connected by tubed steel. The industrial styling of the legs is an element that Prouve adapted to other pieces, and has become a signature element in his works.
The Bastille Cafe Rectangular Dining Table has a galvanized steel frame & top that preserves the balance of form defined by the original EM Table. Abrasion detail and surface markings create a chic worn-industrial look, and a zinc finish is applied for rust resistance.
