Sitzen - Liegen - Schaukeln

Furniture by Thonet
Is there anyone not familiar with the famous coffee-house chairs, the curved rocking chairs or the tubular-steel chairs of the Bauhaus era? Known since 1819 for groundbreaking technologies like bent wood and tubular steel, Thonet is a company that has shaped many generations of furniture culture. Both exhibition and companion book will shift the focus squarely onto the less well-known new developments from post-1945 up to the present. An investigation of Thonet’s factory archive, numerous new photographs of specimen copies and reprints of selected house journals promise the first comprehensive overview of the company’s more recent and most up-to-date seating-furniture production.
