Thonet Chairs

Thonet chairs in the Thonet production in Frankenberg/Eder

The German furniture manufacturer Thonet stands for furniture of the highest quality, and for all the Thonet chairs are considered endearing design classics. Thonet chairs can be roughly divided into two historic groupings: bentwood and tubular steel cantilever. The bentwood chairs were developed in the late 19th century by Michael Thonet, the tubular steel cantilevers come from the Bauhaus era in the 1920s and 1930s. In addition to their historic programme, Thonet also produce contemporary chair designs, including, for example, the 404 by Stefan Diez or the bar stool S 123 by James Irvine. Among the best known Thonet classic chairs are the so-called coffee house chair 214 by Michael Thonet from 1859 , the S 43 Classic by Mart Stam (1931) and the S 32 / S 64 by Marcel Breuer (1929-30).
