Design Story

The German furniture manufacturer Thonet has been known since the 19th century for its revolutionary approach to production methods and materials; something which relates not only to the bentwood process but also the tubular steel designs of the Bauhaus era. One of the best known representatives of this era is the desk S 285 by Marcel Breuer. With the Thonet S 285 the designer created a unique, harmonious connection between the contrasting materials of tubular steel and wood. The supporting steel frame of the S 285 provides an elegant accompaniment to the table top and storage elements such that they appear to float in the structure. Produced exclusively by Thonet since the 1930s the S 285 desk is available in a wide range of versions and colours.
