Bentwood sofa 2000

Restrained, flexible, authentic: the bentwood sofa 2002

Both reduced in form and ideal for today’s residential spaces, the programme range 2000 is set to take centre stage in any room courtesy of its impressive double bentwood bracket. This piece is eye-catching in any location and when viewed from any angle. The main functional feature, a down-to-the-floor, invitingly padded seat element, offers a high level of relaxed comfort; while the cushions for the backrest and sides can be flexibly combined and allow glimpses of the filigree wooden frame, creating an intriguing contrast.

The generous frame embraces the upholstered elements to the back and sides like a flowing ribbon of wood, lending the two-seater an elegant, lightweight quality.  With its paired structural elements, the frame is reminiscent of the legendary Vienna Coffee House Chair – and of two hundred years of the bentwood tradition at Thonet. The flexible arrangement of the larger backrest cushions and the smaller side cushions allows for a variety of comfortable resting positions, enhancing relaxed interaction. When these cushions are removed, the sofa turns into a cosy daybed.

Designer Christian Werner: “It is my concern as a designer to express emotions through form and materials. Working with a material as steeped in history as bentwood was a great challenge – and an even greater pleasure.” The bentwood sofa 2002 is a reinterpretation of the sofa Thonet-style, offering the perfect place to take a break whether in a private living room or a public lounge area. “The essence and special thing about bentwood and thus Thonet is the ability to perfectly adjust to the most different ambiences and interior design styles,” Werner adds.
