bentwood chairDesignGebrüder Thonet, 1876

The famous bistro chair is an icon

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. The so-called export chair of Gebrüder Thonet 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 the chairs to be sent on long journeys without any problem and in large quantities. Now, the 218 – formerly no. 18 – is once again being produced in Frankenberg.

Gebrüder Thonet

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.
