“... something like this can only be done in wood”: Thonet’s Chair Series 404/404F

Stefan Diez has designed a wooden chair program that relates to our bentwood heritage but transformed it by aesthetical and technological criteria. Bent chair legs and armrests merge in a "knot" and are embedded from underneath in the ergonomically shaped seat. With a suspenseful contrast between the elegantly curved wooden elements and the striking upholstery the program communicates and also offers comfort: it does not prescribe a specific seating position, and the organically shaped backrest is comfortably flexing.
