Tolix 45cm Stool
The Tolix Stool was designed by Xavier Pauchard, almost certainly in response to a request from a local firm (thought to be Schneider of Creusot), to provide a 'seat for every worker', thus the reason the Tolix Stool was available in multiple heights - to fit all the factory workers needs. The stool featured in the very first Tolix Catalogue in heights of 45, 50, 60 and 70cm.
Today the Tolix stool has increased its size range and is available from 45cm high to 80 cm high (in 5cm increments). Sizes available are: 45cm / 50cm / 55cm / 60cm / 65cm / 70cm / 75cm / 80cm.
The Stool in 'seat heights' is available in 45cm, 50cm and 55cm high versions. (The Barstools feature braces or footrests near the bottom of the legs. These feature on stool heights from 60cm up).
The Tolix 45cm stool is a beautiful, practical design object. With its cut-out hand space at the top of the stool it is easy to move around the house and can be used around the dining table mixed back with chairs, or as a stool at a desk, or as a bedside table.The bright splashes of colour add energy and interest to your interior. Children find them easy to move and use, and they are sturdy and safe.

The stools are fully painted using a mixed epoxy-polyester thermosetting paint.
GALVANISED VARNISHED 45cm STOOL- Price$463
Zinc coated steel with a transparent gloss varnish - for Exterior or Interior Use
Galvanized steel has gone through a chemical process to keep it from corroding or rusting. The steel gets coated in layers of zinc and then a clear varnish is applied.
When steel is submerged in melted zinc, the chemical reaction permanently bonds the zinc to the steel through the processing of galvanizing, and rust won't attack this protective metal. Zinc also protects the steel by acting as a "sacrificial layer." If, for some reason, rust does take hold on the surface of galvanized steel, the zinc will get corroded first.
GALVANISED NON VARNISHED 45cm STOOL - Price$428
Zinc coated steel (no varnish) - for Exterior or Interior Use
As per the Galvanised Varnished finish except there is no varnish applied. Return to Top
