214 Bentwood Chair designed by Michael Thonet
A true, pioneering, piece of furniture design. Between 1830 & 1836, Michael Thonet invented the "furniture made of bentwood". This technique enabled serial production of furniture for the first time and, with 50 million pieces sold until 1930 alone, the 214 Bentwood Chair is considered to be the most successful industrial product of the 19th Century. The bentwood 'classic' range is still produced by Thonet today and are available to order in a number of different finishes and styles.
