The famous coffee house chair is an icon

The famous coffee house chair is an icon and considered the most successful mass produced product in the world to date: it initiated the history of modern furniture. The basis was a new technique - the bending of solid wood - that Michael Thonet developed and perfected during the 1850s and it was the first time serial furniture production was possible. Added was an ingenious distribution model: 36 disassembled chairs could be packed into a one cubic meter box, shipped throughout the world, and then assembled on site. With its clear, reduced aesthetics this classic has been placed in the most diverse environments for more than 150 years. It is produced in our Frankenberg facility.

Without armrests, open back or backrest (215). Seat and backrest with wicker* or covered with leather or fabric. Seat also available as moulded plywood seat. All wooden parts in stained beech.

*For seats that will receive heavy use, a transparent plastic mesh is available for mounting beneath the wicker.
