Bang up to date
Die Neue Sammlung in Munich is updating the presentation of its Thonet collection. The presentation was conceived by Steffen Kehrle, who has in parallel designed a chair for the museum. A workshop report.
With our “Thonet All Seasons” collection for indoor and outdoor use we give our tubular steel classics the opportunity to present themselves in any weather. Selected icons from the Bauhaus era, including chairs S 33 and S 34 by Mart Stam, the side table B 9 and the lounge chair S 35 by Marcel Breuer and the cantilever chair S 533 by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe have received a makeover and are now weather-resistant and beautiful companions outdoors as well thanks to a special technology. The models can be flexibly designed and used, not least because of the large palette of colours for frames and mesh that can be individually combined. In the sun or rain, on the terrace or balcony, in the winter garden or dining room – our new collection is a real eye catcher in any season.
Why not outdoors? We believe that what works for relaxed moments of sitting in living environments also works in the open air. With “Thonet All Seasons” we offer you the possibility to simply take your favourite tubular steel classics with you into the garden or onto the terrace. Equipped with exposed concrete or solid-core laminate tabletops and an innovative, coloured “ThonetProtect” surface for the frames, which is just as UV resistant as the mesh for the seats and backrests, our new models are especially durable companions.
Show your colours! We offer the models of the “Thonet All Seasons” collection in a number of specially selected colours – and we did not leave the selection to chance: the spectrum for the frames of the “Classics in Colour” collection includes seven colours and is oriented towards both the Bauhaus theory of colour and Johannes Itten’s colour wheel. In addition, the twelve colours available for the mesh enable a multitude of variations. Why not combine a tomato-red frame with moss-green mesh?
The previously existing outdoor furniture of the S 40 / S 1040 collection is integrated in the “Thonet All Seasons” collection. The garden table S 1040 is now available with either an exposed concrete or solid-core laminate tabletop in combination with the colour-coated frames. In addition to these models, the programme range includes the classic cantilever models S 33 and S 34 (Mart Stam) and S 533 (Ludwig Mies van der Rohe), the side tables B 9 (Marcel Breuer) and B 97 (Thonet Design Team), alongside the lounge chair S 35 (Marcel Breuer). Our collection is rounded off with cushions and covers for the seating furniture in matching colours.
