Product description

A new armchair and two side tables now complete the Thonet range 808 by the Munich design duo Formstelle: The 809 functions as a “small brother” of the successful lounge chair 808, and as a place of retreat in smaller rooms or in groups, and in combination with the larger chair or the also new low side tables 1808 and 1809.

For the compact chair 809, designers Claudia Kleine and Jörg Kürschner of Formstelle picked up the design language of the 808: The characteristic design of the seat and backrest shell embracing the person sitting as well as the cosy cushion upholstery reminiscent of waves were preserved. The contrast of the soft inside and outside shells unmistakably make the 809 a new family member of range 808. With its lower backrest height and the missing head support, in comparison to its “big brother”, the new armchair becomes an obviously related and yet independent piece of furniture. It offers the highest comfort and invites you to stay in it for a while. The 809 is also well thought through ergonomically and constructively – as a swivel chair with automatic return mechanism, it promises maximum comfort. Its individuality with regard to cover fabrics and materials make it a cosy companion – in private living rooms, hotel lobbies or modern office and waiting areas.

The programme range is rounded off with the new side tables in two sizes: Table 1808 has a round tabletop with a diameter of 90 cm and a height of 40 cm; the smaller version 1809 (Ø 65 cm) is slightly higher (50 cm), which allows for the two tables to be perfectly combined. The frames of both tables, like the frame of the chair 809, are made of brushed flat steel. “For us, the family idea stood in the foreground, as is customary at Thonet. Thanks to the two different chairs that are, however, well-coordinated, and the two new tables, many combinations are now possible, especially in the contract segment,” said Claudia Kleine.
