Wooden chair 118 Thonet
Frankfurt chair in a new guise: 118 wooden chair by Thonet. The simple design chair looks good from every perspective. Here, the designer Sebastian Herkner has done a great job. Thonet 118 is both minimalistic and elegant at the same time - and thus an absolutely timeless chair.
The seat is covered with Thonet's typical wickerwork, the so-called Viennese wickerwork. The combination of the simple frame and the bright seat looks modern and fresh.
The frame of the 118 wooden chair is made of beech wood, the seat is made of said wicker, which is stretched in elaborate manual work on the chair body.
The curved backrest ensures a comfortable sitting. In contrast to the famous Thonet 214 bentwood chair - which you can also order online - the legs of the 118 chair are rounded off at the back and there are slight edges on the front.
Sebastian Herkner was born in 1981 in Bad Mergentheim and is a true all-rounder. You will find in our shop a variety of design furniture designed by him. There is, for example, the Pallet Daybed by Pulpo. The designer day bed was presented 2016 at the IMM Cologne. Pallet combines Scandinavian simplicity with Japanese minimalism.
The Bell Table collection, meanwhile, features colored glass and organic shapes. And for Moroso, Sebastian Herkner has designed the most extravagant outdoor furniture. Name of the series: M'Afrique.
Note on the tubular braid used
The wickerwork used is a natural product. This type of wickerwork is manufactured exclusively in the Far East and is delivered to Thonet rolled up in rolls. The reed wicker threads are peeled from the Rotang palm growing in East Asia and glued together. Since it is a natural product, the quality and width of the individual threads can vary. Blunt spots are for example growth rings of the plant. Growth and harvesting conditions also influence the quality of the braid.
Thonet's furniture is manufactured with a high degree of technical and manual effort to ensure an appropriate level of quality. For example, each chair with a wickerwork covering is specially tested before leaving the factory.
