Michael Thonet (1796-1871) and his five children were the most successful manufacturers of furniture in the Industrial Age. Michael Thonet abandoned the more traditional technique of glued lamellar wood in favour of the industrial chemical – mechanical steam bent process. In 1911, the Gebrüder Thonet catalogue boasted 980 different models. More recently, Gebrüder Thonet Vienna GmbH (GTV) has develop edits work in a successful blend of the traditional and the modern, of continuity and renewal, with a new production program that begins by re-editing a series of Gebrüder Thonet classics. At the same time, GTV stands for contemporary furnishing. They now collaborate with the most creative designer of the moment; Front, Nendo, Gam Fratesi, Nigel Coates and much more!
