Known to all and very familiar, this bentwood classic reveals its uniqueness at second glance: the armrests are harmonically integrated into the extended backrest; two curved bentwood elements connect the armrests with the seat. They provide stability and, at the same time, a certain flexibility that makes sitting on this chair very comfortable. Therefore, it was used in numerous restaurants and cafés throughout the world around 1900. We produce the original in the well-proven quality.
Wooden parts in stained beech. Seat with cane work, moulded plywood seat or upholstered and covered with leather or fabric. Also available in "Pure Materials" versions.
Michael Thonet’s sons, Franz, Michael junior, August, Josef and Jakob, joined the company Gebrüder Thonet in Vienna in 1853. After Michael Thonet’s death in 1871, they jointly managed the company. They developed new machines and work processes and presented numerous additional developments and new furniture designs. At around the turn of the century, the third generation of Thonets then became active in the company: Karl, Julius, Theodor, Alfred, Victor and Richard also designed a wide range of new furniture and products over the course of their activities.
