As one of the world's oldest furniture makers, Thonet has been producing excellent indoor furniture for public and private spaces since 1819.
The founder of the company, Michael Thonet, decided to start an industrial scale production in 1879, and he did it using the exclusive technique of curving solid beech wood; a process destined to become one of the company's distinctive features.
Along with wood, another material quickly became a very important strength of the company: tubular steel.
Since the 1930s, Thonet has been the biggest producer in the world of this type of furniture, and has collaborated with important exponents from the Bauhaus, including Mart Stam and Marcel Breuer.
Today, Thonet is present at its headquarters in Frankenberg (Hesse, Germany) and also has several stores scattered throughout Europe and in Dubai. The company also owns the Thonet museum.
