Restrained, flexible, authentic: the range 2000 expresses the renowned heritage of Thonet in contemporary form

The range 2000 is a contemporary take on Thonet tradition. The sofa 2002 and armchair 2001 are memorable pieces, which are both based on an airy bentwood frame that wraps around a plush down-to-the-floor seat cushion and also forms the armrests. The elegant wooden bracket gives the sofa and armchair an especially lightweight look – they are also impressive as freestanding pieces in any environment. The sofa’s loose backrest side cushions can be individually combined. Thanks to its reduced form and high seating comfort, the bentwood sofa is not only suited for private use but also serves as a social meeting point in modern office landscapes. The ottoman 2002 H reflects the volume and seams of the armchair and sofa's seat cushions. This allows you create entire lounge landscapes with a dynamic and harmonious look.

Christian Werner

Christian Werner, born 1959 in West-Berlin, studied industrial design in Berlin and Hamburg. After graduating in 1986, he first worked as an full-time designer before starting work as a freelancer in 1992. In addition to designing and developing furniture for various European manufacturers, he realises various interior design projects, e.g. for advertising agencies, apartments, stores and trade fair presentations. For both his spatial concepts and furniture designs, Christian Werner is seeking the suspense in simplicity. A reserved overall picture, balanced proportions and sophisticated details characterise his work. For him, design is a question of attitude, which is mainly based on a gut feeling; it is the expression of emotions through forms and materials.
