If you haven’t heard of the Tolix A chair, you’ve definitely seen it: at a restaurant, in a design magazine, in your cool friend’s backyard. These galvanized sheet-metal chairs, which have inspired countless knockoffs, have been produced by the French company for 80 years. In celebration of the design’s anniversary, they invited eight different designers to create their own unique spin on the classic. Let’s see what they came up with.
Above: Inspired by a painted wood chair she bought at a flea market when she was 17, designer Julie Richoz painted her Tolix chair in a variety of bright colors. I love how the colors respect the classic shape but also take the chair, which on its own has a no-nonsense, industrial vibe, to a more decorative and playful place.
