The Tolix A56 armchair was designed by Jean Pauchard in 1956 and updated with a wider seat in 2019.

The classic metal furniture by Tolix has entered the collections of numerous design museums. The trademark Tolix was registered already in 1927, and soon the different models found their place in factories, offices and hospitals, as well as outside, on café terraces and in public parks. At the end of the 50's, Tolix produced over 60 000 units annually. After that, the Tolix furniture has become increasingly popular as a part of domestic interior design. Every piece is still made in France.

Jean Pauchard continued to run the French company Tolix with his brother Andre after the sudden death of their father Xavier Pauchard in 1948. In 1952 they divided the company so that Jean took over the Tolix furniture brand and he established the eponymous company. In 1956 Pauchard design a armchair to go with the Chaise A chair by his father. Based on the Chaise A he named the armchair A56. Over 50 years later the A56 armchair is one of the most influential metal furniture pieces of our time.
