More about 'Thonet', 'Chemnitz' in our blog

Thonet & Design @ Die Neue Sammlung - The Design Museum, Munich

...Can it be a coincidence that Boppard's most famous son, Michael Thonet, is most popularly known for his curving bentwood chairs?... What is less contentious is that the flow and meandering of first Michael Thonet's creativity and vigour and subsequently that of the company Thonet has carved its mark not only on the Rhenish Massif furniture design and on understandings of furniture, but also the furniture industry, from production to sales and distribution...

smow Song Contest 2019

...Chemnitz - Marianne Brandt: Leonard Cohen - So Long Marianne One of Bauhaus Dessau's more productive protagonists, and one of those who, arguably, best understood the responsibilities of the new world of "industrial design", in retrospect Marianne Brandt's war time decision to return to her native Chemnitz may have been a mistake...

Bauhaus. Textiles and Graphics @ Kunstsammlungen, Chemnitz

...Textiles and Graphics the Kunstsammlungen Chemnitz explore the work undertaken in the Bauhaus weaving workshops, some of the institutions' principle protagonists and their place in wider considerations of inter-War weaving... 2 And which in doing so helps explain in much more detail, as a, figurative, inlay weave, the processes and conceptual thinking that underlies much of the work; that far from being simply patterns, simply textiles, works such as those on show in Chemnitz represent deliberate, considered artistic acts, acts based on the understanding that a textile, as Gunta Stölzl argues, "is always an object of service", yet objects defined not only by their purpose but also their composition, including the properties of the material, the nature of the weave, the pattern and "the colour, increased or weakened through lustre or dullness"3 And despite the age of the works, the reduced lighting in the Kunstsammlungen's exhibition rooms perfectly underscoring the fragility and temporality of textiles, the colours, lustrous and dull, remain not only prominent, but their intention and function are still very present, can still be explored, questioned, admired and enjoyed...

New textile worlds in a creative context – Potential technical, intelligent textiles + smart materials at Wasserschloß Klaffenbach, Chemnitz

...Cycling is considered in a couple of further projects including Chemnitz based Pi-Rope's polyester wheel spokes and Leipzig based Tex-Lock's textile bicycle lock, a product which neatly demonstrates how new materials allow for new formal and functional aspects of everyday objects, and, just as importantly, how the new can be playful and engaging as well as technical; while in terms of winter sports New textile worlds in a creative context features projects such as the Silbaerg snowboards developed, as previously discussed in these dispatches, in Chemnitz and at/in close cooperation with the city's Technical University, and a synthetic ice rink/skiing mat developed and marketed by a Mr Snow from Chemnitz... Similarly all the featured academic institutions are from, more or less, Sachsen, including the Technical University Chemnitz, Vitruvus Hochschule Leipzig, and the Angewandte Kunst Schneeberg, while from (slightly) further afield one finds students and staff from Burg Giebichenstein Halle and the Design and Experimental Material Research and Textile and Surface Design departments at the Weißensee Kunsthochschule Berlin, KHB...

5 New Architecture & Design Exhibitions for May 2019

..."Thonet & Design" at Die Neue Sammlung – The Design Museum, Munich, Germany... 2019 is not only the 100th anniversary of the founding of Bauhaus Weimar, but the 200th anniversary of Michael Thonet establishing his first workshop in his native Boppard am Rhein; a one man workshop in a small village in Prussia which grew into seven factories across what today is four countries...

Anton Lorenz: From Avant-Garde to Industry @ Vitra Design Museum Schaudepot, Weil am Rhein

...In January 1928 Standard Möbel began selling Breuer's designs, and in the same year Thonet began producing further steel tube designs by Breuer; that Standard Möbel enjoyed, at best, middling success, and Thonet were a much larger, established, manufacturer, Thonet acquired Standard Möbel in 1929, thus, and logically, uniting the Breuer portfolio under one roof... Following the sale of Standard Möbel Lorenz both established his own company, Deutsche Stahlmöbel, DESTA, and acquired on behalf of Mart Stam copyrights for Stam's cantilever chair designs; thus allowing Lorenz in 1930 to sue Breuer and Thonet for infringement of Stam's copyrights...
