Innovation, quality and flexibility

Thonet's story begins in 1859, when its founder Michael Thonet, at the time a cabinetmaker and pioneer of industrial design, moved to Vienna, where, thanks to the support of the Prince of Metternich, he decided to start a production of furniture using the unprecedented technique of bending solid beech wood. With his greatest success, chair no. 14, today 214, Michael Thonet was able to bring a decisive innovation to the world of design, revolutionizing the shapes of classic period furniture and adapting to industrial mass production. From that moment on, Thonet became a world-class company and the iconic chair no. 14 soon became the symbol of Viennese coffee shops. The 214 chair is today among the best-selling chairs in the world despite about 150 years of market presence and icon used in famous films and works of art.
