    Details

    Description:
    A chair , based on Josef Hoffman's design from 1930, combines his interest in Art Nouveau and simple shapes with technology which has been used in Bystrice pod Hostynem for over 150 years.

    Features: Defined by its dependable bentwood construction and simple form, the Era Chair (1859) has been in continuous production for more than 150 years. By making the back of the chair and rear legs from a single piece of curved wood, designer Michael Thonet – who perfected the bentwood process for chair-making – eliminated the need for expensive and time-consuming hand-carved joints. The resulting chair is graceful, lightweight and surprisingly strong, the latter of which has been continually proven in cafés and restaurants all over the globe. As with any natural material, slight variations in the texture and color of the wood are to be expected and are not defects. Made in the Czech Republic.
  • This contract-quality chair is suitable for commercial and residential use.
  • This chair, whose millions of representatives are used on the Continent and in the two Americas, possesses nobility,” said Le Corbusier, who asked for Michael Thonet’s chairs in his buildings.
  • Pierre-Auguste Renoir and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec featured this chair in their paintings.
  • Solid European beech wood from FSC-certified sources; caned seat, water-borne stain and varnish or lacquer; nylon floor glides.



  • Manufacturer Details
    With all the talk about form and function, we sometimes overlook the importance of the advances in materials technology in the 20th century. Without doubt, the development of bent and laminated wood veneers was one of those significant innovations, making it possible to construct furniture using fewer pieces and allowing designers to obtain greater visual unity and fluidity. One can hardly imagine the work of Alvar Aalto or Charles and Ray Eames without this technology.

    Michael Thonet is one of the most important innovators in bent wood furniture making. Thonet patented a process of bending under heat several layers of wood veneer glued together and laminated.and used the new material to create curved back-rails and legs on chairs, contoured headboards for beds and scrolled arms for sofas.

    By 1900, the curvilinear furniture made possible by Thonet's techniques were widely produced by furniture manufacturers in the U.S., where the process was exploited to for mass production of simple, inexpensive chairs and tables.

    Thonet also developed a method of bending solid wood and his bent solid and laminated beech chairs with woven cane seats and backs remain among the most successful industrial designed products of all time. Josef Hoffmann, Otto Wagner and Adolf Loos, all of whom designed for Thonet, made use of his bentwood techniques to create classic chair designs still produced or copied today. Le Corbusier later used Thonet furniture in his Pavilion de l'Esprit Nouveau at the 1925 Paris Exhibition. .
