Sketch: Tolix chair

Below: a sketch from last week. 

Here is the chair the sketch was based on.

I love drawing chairs and learning about the history of furniture.
The Tolix chair was created by Xavier Pauchard in 1934.
It was originally meant as an outdoor cafe chair but is now often found inside 
- in a rainbow of colours - in very styley kitchens!
Tolix also makes great industrial looking stools.
the chair is part of collections in the MoMA in New York, the Pompidou Centre in Paris and the Vitra design collection in Weil am Rhein in Germany. - See more at:
