Designed by the Gebrüder Thonet in 1900, the 210 R Chair’s organic form gives it an almost sculptural appearance.
Crafted from solid black stained beech, the chair’s frame is complemented by a cane wickerwork backrest and finished with Thonet’s mark of authenticity.
Described by Adolf Loos and Le Corbusier as a chair with nobility, the 210 R Chair has enjoyed a place amongst Europe’s café culture since its conception and is exemplar of modern design.
Industrialising the manufacture of furniture, Michael Thonet established a system of modular design and pioneered flat-pack distribution. The Gebrüder Thonet exported all over the world and in some territories bentwood chairs were the only contemporary furniture.
