The first French industrial designed chair was designed by Xavier Pauchard in 1937. The Chaise A was stack-able and made of galvanized steel. A complete collection of furniture was designed by Pauchard under the "Tolix" brand. A set of these chairs is simply astonishing to have.
The model pictured on top is not one of the original designs, but it is the AC Chair. The difference is that this model has slightly bigger seating. Personally I like to see it a bit damaged, dented and with a fading paint job. Click here for two examples of the originals which resemble the way I would like to have them in my living room.
