Classic Coffee House Chair with Armrests
The 209 bentwood chair with armrests by the Thonet brothers was put on the market in 1900 and is a variation of the famous Café House Chair 214 designed in 1859 by Michael Thonet, the inventor of bentwood technology. Unlike the 214 chair, the 209 model has a wide arch that functions as a backrest and armrests at the same time, offering even more comfort.
Chair Made from Bentwood
The chair with armrests is made from solid beech that is bent with the help of steam and consists of 6 parts - like the 214 chair. The seat surface is optionally covered with wickerwork, leather or fabric. It is recommended that the cane work be supported with sturdy synthetic mesh if the chair will be subjected to heavy weight.
Classic Chair by Thonet
The Swiss architect Le Corbusier was a fan of the 209 Chair by Thonet and used them to furnish his buildings. Today still, the classic chairs from from bentwood can be found in many apartments and cafés, where thanks to its high-quality processing, they offer style and comfort in equal measure.
