Great classics for little people: the Thonet company will be producing two icons of furniture design in a special edition for children.
For this year's Christmas season, the company will launch a children's version in light pastel colours of both the famous coffee house chair 214 and the tubular steel cantilever chair S 43.
The children's version of the famous coffee house chair No. 14 (today called the 214), is a smaller version of the original coffee house chair, developed in 1873 by one of the sons of company founder Michael Thonet, and will be produced under the label 14KR and feature the typical wickerwork seat.
Also available as 14 KM is a version with a wooden seat in light blue, yellow, pink or white.
There will also be a new children's version of the 1931 cantilever chair by Mart Stam, which was developed during the Bauhaus period.
Like the bentwood chair 14 KM, the children's chair S 43 K made of bent tubular steel will be available in pastel colours, applied as a texture finish.
