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

...Düsseldorf - Walter Hartstang: Walter Murphy - A Fifth of Beethoven Born in Düsseldorf on April 12th 1900, and therefore exactly 19 years before Gropius's new school formally received the name "Bauhaus", Walter Hartstang joined Bauhaus Dessau in 1928, remaining until the institute's closure in 1932; and during which time, and one presumes amongst other activities, he contributed to the canon of Bauhaus designs for the Leipzig based lighting manufacturer Kandem... Leipzig - Hildegard Rantzsch: Hildegard Knef - Für mich, soll's rote Rosen regnen According to the exhibition Bauhaus_Sachsen at the Grassi Museum für Angewandte Kunst there were 17 Bauhäusler either from or closely associated with Leipzig, from which Hildegard Rantzsch was drawn to represent the city...

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...

5 New Architecture & Design Exhibitions for April 2019

...William Shakespeare, Sonnet 98, From you have I been absent in the spring (extended, with apologies) "Bauhaus_Sachsen" at the Grassi Museum für Angewandte Kunst Leipzig, Germany When in 1925 it became clear that Bauhaus would have to leave Weimar, Leipzig was one of the city's to offer it a new home; as history records Walter Gropius accepted the offer from Dessau and thus Bauhaus remains something which bordered the German State of Sachsen... Promising an exploration of the links, contributions and influences through seven thematic areas, including "Bauhaus Stage" with its focus on the Limbach born artist, Kurt Schmidt, "Bauhaus for Industry", including lighting designs created by Bauhäusler for Leipzig based manufacturer Kandem or furniture for the Deutschen Werkstätten Hellerau, "Bauhaus Products at the Grassimessen" which focuses more closely on the museum's own direct relationship to the school, or "Sächsische Bauhäusler", which is just the most perfect grouping of letters, and which will highlight the likes of Marianne Brandt, Hajo Rose or Franz Ehrlich...

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...
