This project comes a little from your canons …

For Thonet we had already designed a formally classic product, the Brezel chair. In this project instead we wanted to detach ourselves decisively from the company’s stylistic features whilst continuing to use their characteristic technique of curved wood.

The wooden curl is one of Thonet’s distinctive features of, in this case it does not have the usual aesthetic value, but becomes a pure visible structure designed to support the backrest.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”20265″ img_size=”full” css=”.vc_custom_1574101425164{margin-bottom: 0px !important;border-bottom-width: 0px !important;padding-bottom: 0px !important;}”][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1574098830297{margin-top: 0px !important;border-top-width: 0px !important;padding-top: 0px !important;}”]

So the whole structure is in curved wood?

Yes, exactly.

I know Thonet uses a special technique to bend wood …

Nowadays there are very few companies that do this type of work. Although it was a bit automated, it is still the usual manual process of the famous chair # 14 by Michael Thonet.[/vc_column_text][vc_gallery type=”image_grid” images=”20264,20265,20174″ img_size=”100×100″ onclick=”kalium_lightbox”][vc_column_text]
