Thonet

Few furniture manufacturers can boast a history to rival that of Thonet. Established in Vienna in the late 19th century Thonet have twice revolutionised furniture production: firstly in the 19th century through Michael Thonet's bentwood process which produced such endearing classics as Coffeehouse Chair No. 14 and then in the 20th century through their development of tubular steel Bauhaus Furniture, including for example Mart Stam's S 43 cantilever or the S 32/S 64 family by Marcel Breuer. With the introduction, and success, of Chair 14, Thonet also introduced the concept of mass production and mass global distribution to the European furniture industry. Whereas at the height of its success Thonet operated seven factories, post war the company was forced to reorganise and now is based solely in Frankenberg, central Germany where all production takes place.

smow Blog Design Calender: January 22nd 1898 – Happy Birthday Ferdinand Kramer!

...In addition Ferdinand Kramer realised numerous furniture projects in cooperation with Thonet, most famously arguably being his B403 bentwood chair, while in context of his tenure at Frankfurt University Ferdinand Kramer designed, pretty much, all the furniture and furnishings... This process, which today is particularly important, is not only historically interesting: it alone explains the immense sales of the Thonet industry, and provides a very interesting reference for the further development of rationalisation in the furniture industry...

smow blog Design Calendar: June 1st 1932 - Mart Stam Awarded Artistic Copyright for the Cubic Cantilever Chair
