Loft style in the countryside
Thonet’s tubular steel cantilever chairs add touch of luxury to a contemporary family home

North Germany Residential Interior

Architect Carsten Joost has created a home for his family near Hamburg, Germany in a modern cubic design with minimalist aesthetics, bringing his unique interpretation of loft style out into the countryside. His deliberate use of raw, authentic materials, such as irregularly structured exposed concrete and traditional clinker brickwork, creates a connection to the rural surroundings. As a feature seating choice, the family selected classic chairs from Thonet. Their minimalist forms fit perfectly within the design concept and the family loves their timeless design, high quality and lasting comfort.

The open-plan living and dining areas in the house’s lower level serve as a hub for the family of five and feature expansive windows that allow the occupants to experience a sense of close connection to the changing seasons and times of day. Upstairs, the rooms are more enclosed and intimate, providing space for quiet retreat. The bedrooms and bathrooms are also located on this floor, as is a home office.

Joost chose Thonet’s iconic tubular-steel cantilever chairs as the perfect complement to the house design. Six S 64 chairs by Marcel Breuer (design: 1938) in the stained black beech version with natural canework surround the dining table. In addition, the S 43 chair, designed by Mart Stam in 1931, with stained black wood elements has been positioned in various locations throughout the house. Joost and his wife were both drawn to the models’ minimalist design, which perfectly unites function and form as well as the classic and the contemporary.

Both designs juxtapose black-stained wooden elements with elegantly gleaming tubular steel. “The chairs blend subtly into the overall house concept without distracting from it. The chair frames, for example, glisten in the sunlight creating reflections of light that we deliberately incorporated into the design,” explains Carsten Joost. Ultimately, the chairs have also proved their worth through their unparalleled comfort, which endures even after years of use. “The chairs are unbelievably comfortable. And, in the end, that is what really matters when it comes to seating.”

Thonet – future-oriented furniture design with a long tradition
The unique success story of Thonet began with the work of master carpenter Michael Thonet. Ever since he established his first workshop in Boppard on the River Rhine in 1819, the name Thonet has stood for high-quality, innovative and elegant furniture. The breakthrough came with the iconic chair No. 14, today known the world over as the Vienna Coffee House Chair: the pioneering technique of bending solid beechwood enabled the mass production of chairs for the first time.

The second milestone in design history was the tubular steel furniture by the famous Bauhaus architects Mart Stam, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Marcel Breuer in the 1930s. During those pioneering years, Thonet was the world’s largest producer of these tubular steel furniture designs, which are today considered timeless.

Michael Thonet’s fifth- and sixth-generation descendants are actively involved with the company’s business as partners and sales representatives. Thonet
