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

smow Song Contest 2019

...Kempten - Helene Nonné: Georges Brassens - Les Sabots d'Hélène Kempten and Bauhaus don't have the closest of associations, even Bauhaus and Allgäu caused the selection committee a few headaches; however, for a few post-War years Helene Nonné lived in Wangen im Allgäu...

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...

smow Blog Design Calender: December 10th 1869 - Thonet Relinquish Solid Wood Bending Privilege

...On December 10th 1869 Gebrüder Thonet voluntarily relinquished their 1856 Privilege in respect of "The manufacture of chairs and table legs made of bent wood, the bending facilitated by the action of steam or simmering liquids"; thereby ending not only a thirteen year monopoly during which time Thonet became a firmly established global brand, but also the culmination of a neigh on three decade story which highlights the importance of patent protection in the furniture industry... A carpenter by trade, Michael Thonet began experimenting with bending wood veneers in his native Boppard am Rhein in the early 1830s, and therefore at that period when veneer was not only becoming increasingly popular in Europe, but when the introduction of mechanised production methods was making it ever more readily and cost effectively available; as such, one can understand his experimentation as an attempt to develop processes which allowed for meaningful expressions of the potential of that material, if you will to allow carpentry to move in new directions, for all in terms of furniture production...

smow Song Contest 2018

...Kempten/Quiberon, Brittany: Bertrand Belin - Hypernuít Formally the twin with Quiberon was arranged in 1971 by the village of Sankt Mang, before being taken on by Kempten following Sankt Mang's assimilation in the course of the 1972 local government reorganisation; and although both Sankt Mang/Kempten and Quiberon can boast a Celtic origin there is otherwise very little that links the Breton peninsula community with the one at the foot of the Allgäuer Alpen... Given Sankt Mang/Kempten/Quiberon's Celtic heritage there was an obvious temptation to select a Breton roots artist, and the responsible committee got stupidly overexcited when they discovered the band Ar Re Yaouank, established by two brothers from Quimper...

smow martimás. Or, how the smow network can be considered (almost) Hanseatic

...As a confederation the Hanseatic League was based in northern Germany, the reason being quite simply a common language, Niederdeutsch; today with showrooms in Hamburg, Leipzig, Chemnitz, Cologne, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt and Berlin, smow continue this tradition, albeit expanded through southern German showrooms in Stuttgart, Munich, Kempten and Villingen-Schwenningen, and thus showrooms in Oberdeutsch language region with its colourful canvas of Frankisch, Schwäbisch, Alemannische and Bairische dialects...

IMM Cologne 2018 Compact: 118 by Sebastian Herkner for Thonet

...It's probably fair to say that no object at IMM Cologne 2018 confused us quite as much as the new 118 chair by Sebastian Herkner for Thonet... And now with the 118 Thonet present the "Offenbach" Chair, a nod to Sebastian Herkner's adopted home, and a name which contains the sort of delightfully irreverent self-irony sadly missing in the largely humourless contemporary furniture industry...
