Only a single location is bent rather than the overall structure in the ‘Single-curve’ collection by design studio Nendo for Gebrüder Thonet Vienna, maintaining the brand’s trademark bentwood feature.

The collection includes a stool, a high stool, low tables, and a dining table. Because of the “single-curve”, the pieces do not give the immediate impression of bentwood furniture, but upon closer inspection one notices that the technique is indeed used.

Says Nendo, “The utmost care was taken to ensure that the materials, part sizes, and proportions all remain true to traditional Thonet design. The combination of straight lines with a single bent section creates a strong sense of contrast, which in turn further highlights the attraction of the bentwood design.”
