A real all-rounder: the S 661 moulded plywood chair

With our revival of the S 661, we are relaunching Günter Eberle’s award-winning design from the early 1950s in a range of different versions. The chair’s versatility and its efficient use of material make it the perfect all-rounder for dining areas and kitchens, living rooms and home offices, as well as public spaces such as restaurants and waiting areas. The moulded plywood seat shell showcases the natural material, be it elegant walnut, warm oak or natural or stained beech. The tubular steel frame is available with either a chrome-plated or powder-coated finish. Despite the minimalist shape and use of materials, the visible wood grain and soft curves lend the chair a homely look and give it a special presence in the room. The S 661 combines clear lines with a precise contour. Combining materials, in this case moulded plywood and tubular steel, is typical Thonet.

Günter Eberle

Who is Günter Eberle? Little is known about the former head of the Thonet architecture department in Frankenberg. Except for one extensive paper he wrote in 1956 titled “Information on advertising, design and construction” – a set of working instructions for the product development and marketing areas – there are very few documents and information from or about him. What remains of him are various furniture designs he created during his time at Thonet – some of which were award winning. His malleable design for the S 661 moulded plywood chair, with its elegantly curved seat shell, was awarded a silver medal at the Triennale design exhibition in Milan in 1954, and also went on to win the iF Product Design Award in the same year.
