The Thonet S 32 cantilever chair and the S 64 version with armrests designed by Marcel Breuer are some of the most iconic pieces of tubular steel furniture. Their popularity stems from the appealing combination of something new and something tried and tested: the solid-wood seat and backrest with canework embody tradition, while the chrome-plated tubular steel frame represents the present and the future. In January 2024, renowned German designer Sebastian Herkner will debut the “Rethinking Classics: S 32/S 64 DARK MELANGE” collection, exclusively curated for Thonet. Here, natural colour nuances in the chairs’ wooden elements and frames meet dark opalescent canework. This collection is a distinctive new take on popular classics destined to be statement pieces in any interior design. Thonet’s new elegant, dark canework is a material innovation based on natural dyeing processes.
