Marcel Breuer's S 35 L armchair was first presented in 1930 at the Grand Palais in Paris as a contribution by the German Werkbund. Today the classic lounge chair is manufactured by Thonet in a variety of leather versions. Characteristic of the S 35 L is the doubling of the cantilever effect, which results from the fact that the armrests of the chair spring independent of the chair and thus balance the swing, making the S 35 L particularly comfortable.

IMM Cologne 2020: High Five!!

...520 by Marco Dessí for Thonet For all the associations of bentwood furniture with open, airy, reduced forms, as the exhibition Bentwood and Beyond at the MAK Vienna neatly explains, in their early years Thonet produced a lot of upholstered bentwood furniture... According to Marco Dessí a major influence for the 520 is the Thonet 209 from 1900, a work which audaciously sends an armrest ring sweeping down from the top of the backrest, and while we get the association with the 209, we're also sensing the spirit of some of Adolf Schneck's early 20th century works for Thonet, and also something new...

...Thonet and Modern Furniture Design" at the MAK – Museum für angewandte Kunst, Vienna, Austria As oft discussed in these dispatches, whereas the Thonet (hi)story begins in Boppard it's crescendo was in Vienna, and in many regards with works such as the chair Nr... 14, the so-called coffee house chair, Thonet contributed as much to the (hi)story of Vienna as Vienna did to the (hi)story of Thonet; consequently, it is very fitting that the city's Museum für angewandte Kunst should mark the 200th anniversary of Michael Thonet establishing his first workshop in Boppard with an exhibition dedicated to exploring Thonet's contribution to the development of furniture design: developments and a contribution whose crescendo emanated from the family workshop in Vienna-Gumpendorf, and which continues to resonate today...

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?...

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...
