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

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...

Full House: Design by Stefan Diez @ The Museum für Angewandte Kunst Cologne. Reprise

...Equally satisfying is the generous provision of Stefan Diez's chair designs, Yard for emu, 404 for Thonet, Eugene for e15, and a truly delightful New Order Bench for Hay, being scattered throughout the exhibition for the visitors pleasure: for lest we forget, chairs are meant to be sat on, not admired...

smow Song Contest 2017

...Kempten - Neurogami: We're not entirely sure how an avant-garde electronic musician from Scottsdale, Arizona, came to compose a tune about a town in southernmost Bavaria...

smow blog Interview: Mark Braun - Reducing, reducing, reducing, while always maintaining an aesthetic tension in a product, that for me is the ultimate challenge.

...Following his graduation in 2006 Mark established his own studio in Berlin from where has realised a wide variety of projects for international clients including, amongst others, e15, Northern Lighting, NOMOS Glashütte and Thonet... Produced by Thonet and realised in cooperation with, and available exclusively through, the Berlin based furniture dealer minimum, the m01 trestle is unmistakably based on a bicycle frame, and is equally unmistakably an abstraction of a bicycle frame...
