Chair for Thonet Frankenberg

Minimalistic and honest while at the same time filigree and concise: the 118 is a classic wooden chair which ensures subtle elegance at any dining table and in any restaurant. With his new chair range for Thonet, which premieres at imm cologne 2018, Sebastian Herkner refers to the diversified heritage of the company. Based on the principle of reducing a chair to the fewest elements possible, which Michael Thonet developed in the mid-19th century, Herkner takes this principle one step further with the 118: the studio adds sophisticated details to recently often seen simplicity in the chair segment, making the design less dominant and, at the same time, more noble.
