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 Interview: Mark Braun - Reducing, reducing, reducing, while always maintaining an aesthetic tension in a product, that for me is the ultimate challenge.

...Following his graduation in 2006 Mark established his own studio in Berlin from where has realised a wide variety of projects for international clients including, amongst others, e15, Northern Lighting, NOMOS Glashütte and Thonet... Produced by Thonet and realised in cooperation with, and available exclusively through, the Berlin based furniture dealer minimum, the m01 trestle is unmistakably based on a bicycle frame, and is equally unmistakably an abstraction of a bicycle frame...

While the bentwood end sections not only provide a nice link to the finest of Thonet traditions, but also means they don't get in the way...

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...
