The German manufacturer Thonet presents these novelties at this year’s Salone del Mobile. Naoto Fukasawa’s new solid wooden chair is an addition to the ‘1131’ table Thonet presented last year.
“First, I perceived these chairs as design classics. But then I realised that their main quality lies in their sustainability and environmental friendliness: there is no material wastage, and the chairs are very lightweight,” says Fukasawa. “They meet all the requirements for a perfect product. I deeply respect this and therefore I have tried to base my designs for Thonet on the same philosophy. I wanted to create something very simple, something uncomplicated for Thonet.”
Through the use of wood, Marc Venot has re-interpreted the classic B9 tubular steel nested table set by Marcel Breuer. The tables are available in three different heights, either individually or as a set.
