The lounge armchair Thonet 808 with the stool 808 H and a side table 1808 or 1809
The Chair 808 stands for protection, retreat and peace, but also for openness. The design is reminiscent of a collar that protects you. The shell also conveys a sense of security with its luxuriant, wavy upholstery, which is in deliberate contrast to the outer shell. The modern mechanism allows the chairs to adapt directly to their user. The Thonet 808 can be configured individually for you; you can choose between a tubular steel frame (chrome, colors), a wooden frame or a flat steel frame. Modern upholstery fabrics or beautiful leather are available. The side tables 1808 and/or 1809 match the armchair. The low tables are exactly matched to the height of the armchair and can also be placed directly next to each other due to their different heights.
The smaller armchair Thonet 809 and the side tables 1808 or 1809
The smaller Thonet 809 armchair is just as comfortable and technically equipped. It is particularly suitable for small rooms or group combinations. It can also be built according to your individual wishes. In this model, too, the side tables 1808 and/or 1809 fit in height, so that a comfortable living is guaranteed.
Claudia Kleine (1974*) and Jörg Kürschner (1969*) studied interior design at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. Since 2001 they have been working together in their Munich office Formstelle as product designers and interior designers. The Formstelle office takes into account all possible contexts in their designs: Kleine and Kürschner do a lot of research and experiment with materials before a product goes into serial production. This is how innovative solutions and furniture with a demand for quality are created.
The company Thonet
The master carpenter Michael Thonet (1796-1871) is considered a pioneer of industrial furniture production and one of the first designers. With the laminated wood process he developed, furniture could be produced in series for the first time from 1836 onwards. The worldwide success of the family business began with the coffee house chair No. 4 and the bentwood chair No. 14. Michael Thonet designed the Thonet coffee house chair 214 in 1859. The traditional company was not only at the forefront of quality, but also produced other innovations such as the iconic cantilever chair, the chairs S 32 and S 64 by Bauhaus designer Marcel Breuer (1902-1981). Both chairs are equipped with wickerwork, the chair S 64 has comfortable armrests. The actual inventor of the cantilever chair, however, was the Dutchman Mart Stam (1899-1986), whose cantilever chair S 43 with its 1931 design is also available in the pro office store. This furniture from Thonet is also available in the pro office store, as are matching side tables in a set, other chairs and the Thonet desk. Thonet GmbH is still a family-run manufacturer based in Frankenberg, Germany, which is committed to both tradition and young design.
