First manufactured in 1876, model no. 18 with the striking “hairpin” in its backrest returns to the Thonet portfolio with clear and reduced aesthetics as 218. Along with the chairs no. 14 and no. 56, chair no. 18 was one of the bestselling models of the Thonet production. Known as the "export chair" of Gebrüder Thonet, it was often sold for use in restaurants and cafés – especially in South America. Disassembled into its individual parts, 36 chairs fit into a sea chest, allowing large quantities of the chairs to be easily be sent on long journeys. No. 18 – now with the model no. 218 – is once again being produced in Frankenberg.

Michael Thonet’s sons, Franz, Michael junior, August, Josef and Jakob, joined the company Gebrüder Thonet in Vienna in 1853. After Michael Thonet’s death in 1871, they jointly managed the company. They developed new machines and work processes and presented numerous additional developments and new furniture designs. At around the turn of the century, the third generation of Thonets then became active in the company: Karl, Julius, Theodor, Alfred, Victor and Richard also designed a wide range of new furniture and products over the course of their activities.
