Perfect Design - Thonet No. 14

Michael Thonet's Chair No. 14 is the first mass-produced item of furniture whose form corresponds entirely to its manufacturing technique: perfect design in 1859. This book describes the back story to this design icon, shows the old and new models and explains the various techniques used to bend the wood. A variety of detailed images present the various versions of the Thonet chairs. One practical section at the end of the book entitled "How old is my Thonet chair" helps readers, for the first time, to determine exactly the age of any Thonet chair.
