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.

Eileen Gray’s achievement in design and architecture is considered pioneering work of Modernism. During her lifetime, she was honoured by the London Royal Society for Arts with the title Royal Designer for Industry, and she is one of few women mentioned in the same breath as Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe and Marcel Breuer. ClassiCon produces her iconic furniture designs as the sole and rightful licensee worldwide, in coordination with Aram Designs Ltd., London.
