Thonet’s S 160 reinvents itself – as a barstool and a cosy version with a wooden frame    

At Orgatec 2018, Thonet presents two new products – the barstool S 160 H and model 160 with a wooden frame – that both enrich the collection S 160 by Delphin Design (launched in 2010) with their individuality and develop new areas of application. The beautiful chair range S 160 with its attractive design for the contract segment is characterised by comfort and various versions. 


Comfortable aloft sitting: the new, stackable barstool S 160 H 


With the S 160 H, Thonet brings to market a filigree and, at the same time, especially comfortable barstool for the gastronomy sector and for working at high tables. Similar to the original chair S 160, the barstool has a tubular steel frame and is stackable. The new design by Thomas Wagner and Dirk Loff (Delphin Design) is characterised by a bracket made of flat steel which serves as a footrest and provides the barstool with a visual structure. The seat shell with its generous backrest is available in plastic or moulded plywood, equivalent to range S 160.    


Model 160: the cosy chair for the contract segment 


In its name, the new chair 160 lacks the “S” for tubular steel – for the first time, the popular auditorium chair is also available with wooden legs. Thanks to the solid beech frame and the seat shell, optionally available with upholstered seat, partial upholstery or full upholstery (also made of plastic or moulded plywood), this version is also suitable for additional areas of application, for example cosy cafés. Like the standard version S 160 with a chrome-plated frame, the 160 convinces with its unmistakable and simple formal language. The chair is defined by straight wooden legs with clearly defined edges, connected on both sides in a reversed U-shape forming an elegant curve beneath the seat shell.
