The chairs of the terrace

The chairs of the terrace are Tolix chairs, specifically the T2 model which is produced in France. They were designed more than 80 years ago by Xavier Pauchard, a young man born in Le Morvan, a region known for its wood production. And curiously his family was dedicated to the treatment of zinc.

At the age of 27, after years of experimentation, Xavier Pauchard was able to protect metals from oxidation by a galvanization process, which led him to manufacture metal furniture for the exterior, founding his own company: Tolix.

The furniture manufactured by Xavier Pauchard was a great success, especially among the restaurants and cafeterias in Paris, who appreciated the lightness, the resistance and the functionality of this type of furniture. At Ocaña, we fell in love with these chairs for the same reasons adding that we find them precious and they give to the terrasse a very today’s color, a very yesterday’s color, at the end, Ocaña’s color.
