This elegant bent wood classic is a masterpiece in its construction and production designed by gebrüder Thonet in 1900: 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 bent wood chairs, chair no. 209 also consists of only six parts. Due to its esthetic 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. These chairs are from 1979 and made of beech wood and webbing seats. They are in very good original condition.
