I won't be here for the next 2 months due to a lot of work that has to be done in a short time. I'll be having lots of stressful days, sleepless nights... and hopefully I'll come back as an architect. 

See you in summer!

P.S. I've also left the 365 project for a while. But I'll finish it as soon as I'm able to do it again!

This is the Tolix A chair, designed by French entrepreneur Xavier Pauchard in 1934.

They are available as chairs, armchairs, benches, stools... in galvanized steel, perforated... in multiple versions.

I have to say I'm not a huge fan of metal chairs; but I do like industrial esthetics. Moreover, I've been seing Tolix chairs all over restaurants and cafés lately and I must admit I'm beginning to like these colorful chairs.

Although, I'd prefer them in grey tones, because I think (in my humble opinion) they're better put as "rough" metal with wood and other neutral colours, such as darker greys, black and white.

More information at Tolix.
