Design Story

The German manufacturer Thonet has been famed since the 19th century for its revolutionary and innovative use of manufacturing processes and materials: something which applies not only to bentwood furniture with which they were established, but also to the steel tube designs of the Bauhaus era. One of the most famous representatives of this era is the S 285 desk by Marcel Breuer. Here the designer created a unique, harmonious, connection between the contrasting materials steel tube and wood. The S 285's load-bearing tubular steel frame is an elegant, continuous line, embedded in which one finds the table top and storage elements, embedded in such a manner that they appear to float in the structure. The S 285 has been produced exclusively by Thonet since the 1930s, and is currently available in a variety of finishes and colors, as well as a mirror-inverted version. The latest addition to the S 285 program is the S 285/0, which is reduced to the essentials, and thus could not better represent the so-called "New Objectivity".
