Distinctive, unobtrusive and modern - wood surfaces they way they are supposed to be. The careful selection of wood such as beech, oak, nut or others is important to us. We professionally select the woods and refine the surfaces with stains or water based varnishes, resulting in fine wood surfaces with a typical structure and harmonic, perfectly finished veneers - unmistakable and genuine. In the spirit of our sustainability policy, we only use woods and veneers from sustained forestry that are certified.
Natural, robust and vivid – leather is an exquisite natural product that fascinates. Thonet exclusively purchases highquality leather, providing the furniture with value, durability, and distinc tiveness. The material for each individual object is especially selected and perfectly processed with cuttingedge technology. No leather is like the other. The skins exclusively come from European animals, mainly from the Alpine region. They are selected in a targeted way and processed with the greatest care. Each piece of leather is naturally a unique specimen and acquires a vivid patina when used.
Cane work, also called rattan or rotang, is considered especially robust and strong and has many ecological advantages. It has the quality and resistance of nature, and the plants regrow quickly. We purchase the caned mats, cut them to size and carefully insert them manually into the wooden frames of seats and backrests. A new innovative method ® was developed for chairs that are subject to great strain. For this purpose, a barely visible transparent plasticmesh is placed beneath the natural cane work for extra support.
Outdoors at home: With our “Thonet All Seasons” collection for indoor and outdoor use we give our tubular steel classics the opportunity to present themselves in any weather. Selected icons from the Bauhaus era, including chairs S 33 and S 34 by Mart Stam, the side table B 9 and the lounge chair S 35 by Marcel Breuer and the cantilever chair S 533 by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe have received a makeover and are now weather-resistant and beautiful companions outdoors as well thanks to a special technology.
