...At IMM Cologne 2013 Thonet are launching the S 1520, S 1521 and S 1522, a family of re-worked, updated, coat rack/shoe rack "systems" based on original Thonet designs from the 1930s Developed as an in-house project by the Thonet Design Team, the S 1520, S 1521 and S 1522 are constructed from steel tubing combined with a highly durable netweave mesh and exude what one could, but probably shouldn't, refer to as a "classic Thonet aesthetic"... The S 1521 is two shelves which can either be used low down for shoes or higher up as a double-shelf system...

The S 1521 coat rack from the Thonet Design Team can also be used as a shoe rack and embodies the design characteristics of the German company. As with many other Thonet furniture objects the coat rack is crafted from bent steel tube, here combined with a plastic mesh material and thus ensures reduced elegance in any entrance hall. The clothes rack is part of the Thonet S 1520 product family, a collection featuring different variants on theme. In the design of the Thonet coat rack the Thonet Design Team took their inspiration from the classic Thonet B52/1 coat rack, an object which first appeared in the 1930 Thonet catalogue. The restrained design of the rack guarantees to provide not only a practical solution and ample storage space in any entrance hall, but can also be effortlessly combined with other Thonet furniture to create a coherent composition.
