On the occasion of Thonet's 200th anniversary, the MAK invites you to take a journey through time through modern furniture design. The bentwood furniture developed by Michael Thonet wrote style history and founded one of the most successful furniture brands in the world. At the end of the 1920s, Thonet also entered the tubular steel furniture business, which remains an important pillar of the company's production today. The exhibition and book contextualize the Thonet program with many important works in furniture history. In this way, Thonet furniture is embedded for the first time in the technological, typological, aesthetic and historical development of furniture design beyond a chronological overview. Supplemented by loans from international collections, the book shows over 300 exhibits, most of which were newly photographed.

Accompanying the exhibition Bentwood and Beyond at the MAK – Museum of Applied Arts, (December 2019 - April 2020)
