Our love for design classics took us to Italy where we bought several vintage Thonet 209 chairs. They were used in a cute Italian café where they were enjoyed by many guests over the years. We brought them home to enjoy around our dining table and the rest are currently in storage. However, we are now ready to let some of them go for you to enjoy.

About the chair
This elegant bentwood classic is a masterpiece in its construction and production: the projecting frame that forms both the backrest and armrest is bent into its form from a single piece of solid beech wood. Like the original model of all bentwood chairs, no. 214, chair no. 209 also consists of only six parts. Due to its aesthetic reduction in combination with the organic form, it almost looks like a sculpture. Swiss architect Le Corbusier was fascinated with it and used it in many of his buildings, for example the Weissenhof Estate in Stuttgart in 1927. He confirmed that “… this chair has nobility.” It is produced in our Frankenberg facility.
