Quite a while ago, I modelled the A and A56 chairs by Tolix and put them up on Turbosquid. They have since been among my best-sellers. Yet I couldn’t help feel like these old Blender models were, well, not really up to scratch, lacking fine details and generally showing their age.
So since I had to use these chairs for a recent project, I decided to remodel the lot in Max, add a few stools on top and create several custom materials as close as possible to the originals.
I ended up with five distinct models (A Chair, A56 Armchair, H45 Stool, H60 Bar Stool and H60PD Bar Stool) and seven custom materials (Brut Varnished, Candy Red, Perforated, Gunmetal, RAL Paint, Corrugated 1, Corrugated 2), with each model having their own hand-painted maps = 35 different models, all ready-to-render.
Instead of uploading the models to Turbosquid as a new file, I have updated the old Tolix product, which should mean that everyone who bought the old chairs can now download the new versions for free.
Here are two renders of the chairs in action, followed by, oh dear, an image of the old product.
