Thonet & Design

Thonet and Design

From the most humble suburban cafes to high fashion shoots and countless films, the ingenious design of the Thonet chair No. 14, created by Michael Thonet in 1859, has conquered the world. Its immanent beauty, bentwood technology and ease of assembly led to its adaptation across European caf├ęs upon its introduction. Thonet & Design features chair designs of Thonet GmbH from 1838 to the present day. Full-page images depict the famous No. 14 as well as chairs by Walter Gropius, Mies van der Rohe, Verner Panton and Marcel Breuer.
