Opening – Concept Gallery Frankfurt
First Amsterdam, Antwerp and Düsseldorf, and now the Thonet Concept Gallery has opened its doors in Frankfurt am Main.
Contemporary Thonet furniture mixes with classics in the showroom: the solid wood table S 1090 with a matching bench, first presented in January 2017, and the side tables S 18 and 1025 are on display. Other current designs, including the tubular steel sofa S 5000 by James Irvine, the lounge chair 808 by Formstelle, and the sculptural conference table system S 8000 designed by Hadi Teherani, are also on display in Frankfurt. The exhibition is rounded off with a selection of 19th century bentwood icons and tubular steel classics from the Bauhaus era: the cantilever chairs S 32 by Marcel Breuer and S 533 by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe along with the world-famous Vienna Coffee House Chair 214 and the bentwood chair 209 – also in the natural “Pure Materials” edition – offer an insight into the German company’s almost 200 year-long history.
