Thonet S 43

Thonet S 43 Classic Redesign for Agility

The reduced tubular-steel design of the ground-breaking S 43 cantilevered chair by Mart Stam from 1931 now benefits from two updates that make it the perfect choice for flexible office layouts, home offices and many other spaces. With a barstool and swivel chair, also available in an upholstered version for greater comfort, Thonet is not merely adding new functions and shapes to its S 43 range… The extended product family with its versatile additions can now be used to create entire office landscapes.

The Thonet classics are renowned pieces of cultural heritage. They represent design that can be enjoyed over generations, offering durability – and also adaptability. After the successful expansion of Marcel Breuer’s iconic S 32 range with the introduction of the S 64 Atelier swivel chair and two barstool versions, Thonet now presents its latest cantilever family – just in time for a new year and the fresh solutions it will hopefully bring.

Thonet S 43 Classic Redesign

The new S 43 Atelier swivel chair is the ideal desk chair for anyone seeking an affordable, sustainable design product. The “cantilevered chair without back legs”, the S 43, a design by Mart Stam from 1931, made history with its timeless form. The pure, understated shape of the cantilever chair lives on in the new models: clear lines as well as aesthetic and material austerity are the distinguishing features of the swivel chair and the new barstool versions.

Whether for a home office, a design studio, a startup, an architect’s practice or an open-space office – the S 43 Atelier can be used wherever mobility and flexibility are key. The five-star swivel base on castors creates movement in static environments with its active, agile character. The versions with arm rests and upholstery offer even more comfort.

The new barstools S 43 H (75 cm) and S 43 HT (65 cm) have retained the cantilever construction that dispenses with back legs. They combine in an understated, elegant way at counters and tall tables, whether it’s at home, in lounges and waiting areas, in restaurants or in constantly changing office layouts. In combination with other models from the S 43 range, entire landscapes can be created with a mix of heights and looks.

All the models in the S 43 range have a bent tubular-steel frame, optionally chrome-plated or coated. The seat and backrest are made of moulded plywood (beech and oak, stained or varnished).
