Thonet is launching an outdoor range of classic chairs by Mart Stam, Marcel Breuer and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, reveals CEO Thorsten Muck in this special Dezeen produced for the German brand Called Thonet All Seasons. The fresh collections at the imm Cologne 2016 trade fair consist of four tubular steel chairs. It is noted, that these chairs originally designed in 1920’s by teachers at the famous Bauhaus art School. These chairs were extremely suitable for outdoor use, but somehow have missed the heritages. The iconic chairs feature ultraviolet resistant mesh upholstery on steel frames treated with an exclusive weather resistant coating named “ThonetProtect”.
These chairs are made in a special way with a surface which is resistant against harmful outdoor environments. The classic designs gives the opportunity to customers to mix and match frame and upholstery colors. The frames of chairs are made with Thonet’s Frankenberg Factory in Germany with combining different colors to produce individual furniture. If you look the history you’ll came to know that Thonet was founded by German carpenter Michael Thonet in 1819 and became famous for its steam bent wood furniture. The teachers of the Bauhaus came to Thonet to ask if we were able to bend tubular steel in the way to able to bend wood."
