At imm cologne 2019, the original version from the Thonet tubular steel furniture catalogue from 1935 is presented as a re-edition with a tubular steel frame and transparent glass tabletop. This table was presumably created around 1928 in the context of the Esters and Lange Houses in Krefeld designed by Mies van der Rohe. With a fresh look at his original, Thonet also presents more new interpretations of the MR 515 which the company entrusted to the Hamburg-based designers Eva Marguerre and Marcel Besau, resulting in adaptations that present sensitive embellishments to this furniture classic’s elegance. It combines modern ideas of use and technical details with a contemporary touch. These interpretations of the original are available in two sizes and three colour combinations: chrome/safety glass, all black/matte, and champagne/bronze. The champaign/bronze version was exclusively developed for the “Café Thonet”, which Thonet will open at its trade fair booth at imm cologne 2019.
