S40 THONET OUTDOOR CHAIR
The unique success story of Thonet began with the work of master carpenter Michael Thonet (1796-1871), which established the transition from manual furniture production to industrial production. Michael Thonet succeeded in making the breakthrough to industrial production in 1859 in Vienna with chair No.14, later called the „Vienna coffee house chair“, for which the innovative technique of bending solid beech wood was used. Chair No.14 cleared the way for Thonet to become a global enterprise, and numerous successful bentwood designs followed. Thonet’s production peaked in 1912: that year, two million units were produced and sold worldwide.
The family company has had its head ofﬁces in Frankenberg in the north of Hesse. Today, all bentwood and tubular steel classics as well as the contemporary collections are produced here in a facility with cuttingedge production equipment and a staff of workers with vast experience to draw upon. Thonet still develops innovative products that stand out due to their quality materials and timeless formal language and always take sustainability and durability under consideration.
Garden chairs that match the classic S 43 by Mart Stam in their construction and design: clear and reserved in their form, with ideal sitting comfort and high quality with respect to materials and processing. Under the model name B 33 g (g = garden) these chairs were first presented in the 1935 Thonet catalog. Today, the wooden strips are made of solid Iroko, an African wood with a high density and weather resistance (FSC seal). It is similar to teak in appearance and has a smooth, even surface. All wooden parts are oiled for protection.
