Jean Pauchard

Andre and Jean Pauchard initially continued to run establishments aftert the sudden death of their father Xavier Pauchard in 1948. However in 1952 they divided the company in two. Andre took over the part of the business that manufactures items for the metalworking industry. Jean took over the Tolix brand, originally launched by his father, and founded the eponymous company.
In 1956 when Jean Pauchard designed the armchair to go with his father’s Chaise A, the first Managing Director of the newly established Tolix Company was creating one of the 20th Centuries classics. Based on the Chaise A, and because it was the year 1956, the chair was called the A56.
Half a century later, the Armchair A56 designed by Jean Pauchard has become one of the most influential pieces of 20th Century metal furniture design.
