Aixia was one of Eileen Gray‘s personal favourites. She used this chair in all of her apartments, sometimes in the dining room, sometimes at a desk. Even in 1929, when she converted a 40 m² apartment in Paris, Rue Chateaubriand, into an atelier of brilliant aesthetic and fascinating functionality for Jean Badovici, Aixia was among the furnishings. The chair is named after the company that produced the steel tubing for Eileen Gray‘s avant-garde designs.

Frame of chromium-plated steel tubing. Feet of solid mahogany. Upholstery: Polyurethane with polyester fibre, cover in fabric or leather. Details and colours see price list.
