Lievore Altherr Molina, 2011/2012

Discrete presence:
The new chair and table program 190 / 1190

The Barcelona based design trio Lievore Altherr Molina has designed a new chair and table program for Thonet for the living and dining segment. The chair 190 and the table 1190 are characterized by the conical wooden chair and table legs that taper towards the top and provide the classic concept with a dynamic lightness. A young, informal look thus becomes the trademark of the program.

The chair program 190

The chair program 190 is available in two versions, with and without armrests. The armrests match the form of the oblique chair legs and thus homogeneously fit in with the design. The rounded shape of the chair legs – the back legs are integrated in the closed backrest – provide a harmonic overall impression.

„Wood and upholstery express both warmth and lightness. The design is an archetype, but a contemporary one."

Fabrics and details

The upholstered chair is available in two versions, with a leather or fabric cover. The upholstery with seat cushion communicates comfort. The top cushion is fixed to the upholstery beneath. A structure of various upholstery foams provides a wonderful amount of comfort and an excellent seating experience. Special decorative seams underscore the high quality and mark the chair’s character.

The table 1190

Conically shaped table legs and a balanced formal language are characteristics that can be found in the table program as well: the filigree, self-supporting tabletop forms a flowing transition to the mitered table legs. The edges of the three-layer solid wood panel are beveled. A head piece cast from aluminum is integrated with the upper ends of the table legs and creates an exciting contrast with the wood.
