For the Thonet company from the town of Frankenberg in North Hesse, 2019 was a year dominated by major anniversaries: in addition to 100 years of Bauhaus, Thonet celebrated its own 200th birthday and now looks back at two centuries of groundbreaking furniture design. “We’re proud of the impact this unique anniversary has had at every level – from product launches and trade show booths all the way to our collaboration with specialist dealers and awareness in the press and social media,” says the firm’s CEO Brian Boyd. “With 200 years of company history and products that are unfailingly contemporary, Thonet is second to none when it comes to modern, timeless furniture that’s made to last and retains its value,” adds Thonet’s equally delighted creative director Norbert Ruf. To mark the anniversaries, Thonet launched two limited celebratory editions (S 533 F and 214 Two-Tone with Studio Besau Marguerre), prestigious museums and galleries examined the Thonet story from diverse angles and numerous events were held for retail partners.
