Work from Home? Thonet offers some Lasting Comforts
As kitchen tables turn into workstations and living spaces double as conference rooms – the concept of the ‘home office’ has never been more relevant. While nobody can feel good about the reasons so many more us are now working from home, this does seem like the kind of seismic social shift that may see many more of us choose to do so voluntarily, even as the pandemic subsides?
And renowned companies such as the one-and-only original Thonet have been thinking about high-quality, thoughtfully designed furniture that meets many different needs – from workplace to home to hospitality – for 200 years.
Whether in cafes, commercial spaces, living or dining rooms, Thonet furniture has always been about encouraging both comfort and communication. When the office moves home, creativity and flexibility are especially key. The appropriate furniture should provide a ‘homely’ appeal while also offering the correct support and versatility for remote working.
The new 1500 conference table by Wolfgang CR Mezger for Thonet. Sleek and stylish with many discreet functions and benefits, including cabling channels in the legs. Offers an easy segue from dining, homework, crafts or family gatherings to online meetings and essential ‘office’ tasks. Shown here with a set of the tubular steel frame S 43 chairs, a Bauhaus era icon by Mart Stam. A pioneering cantilevered design that offers a subtle, comforting flex.
Work or contemplate, Zoom or voice chat in timeless style with the S 35 armchair, a comfortable classic created by bending tubular steel. Marcel Breuer for Thonet. Shown here in leather with matching footstool and hi-tech LUM lamp.
These timeless solutions presented by Thonet can seamlessly create a welcoming yet elegant workplace within your own four walls, in a way that is at once ultra-functional yet also aesthetically pleasing. And if you are going to invest in new homeworking furniture, why not choose highly collectible future heirlooms, beloved by families, businesses, artists, architects and the design-savvy for generations?
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.
For the company today, the continuous process of innovation is the top priority, together with a focus on tradition and fine craftsmanship. Thonet’s furniture designs originate both from its collaborations with renowned national and international creatives and from the in-house Thonet Design Team. Chief Executive Officer Brian Boyd and Creative Director Norbert Ruf manage the company from the corporate head office and production site in Frankenberg/Eder (Germany). Michael Thonet’s fifth- and sixth-generation descendants are actively involved with the company’s business as partners and sales representatives.
