Thonet Bauhaus 100 - Tubular Steel Classics
Tubular steel furniture is a constant in Thonet’s product line. In the 1930s, the company was the world’s largest producer of this innova - tive furniture, which was designed by a number of famous architects including Mart Stam, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Marcel Breuer. Today, the early tubular steel furniture designs are considered milestones in design history. Their clear, open and simple forms were an expression of a new attitude in everyday culture and architecture, which became famous under the catchphrase “New Objectivity”. Currently, numerous success - ful classic models are still in the product line, among them the first cantilever chair S 33 for which Mart Stam was awarded the artistic copyright for its form and basic principle, as well as models S 32 and S 64 by Marcel Breuer.
