Thonet 209 M

Gebrüder Thonet, 1900
 

49 x 56 x height 84 cm (seat height 47 cm)

This elegant bentwood classic is a masterpiece in its construction and production: the projecting frame that forms both the backrest and armrest is bent into its form from a single piece of solid beech wood. Like the original model of all bentwood chairs, no. 214, chair no. 209 also consists of only six parts. Due to its aesthetic reduction in combination with the organic form, it almost looks like a sculpture. Swiss architect Le Corbusier was fascinated with it and used it in many of his buildings, for example the Weissenhof Estate in Stuttgart in 1927. He confirmed that "... this chair has nobility." It is produced in our Frankenberg facility. Open back or with backrest. Seat and backrest with cane work or covered with leather or fabric. Seat also available as moulded plywood seat. All wooden parts in stained beech. Also available in "Pure Materials" versions.

Model quoted : seat in molded plywood
