Details

The Michael Thonet Original Bentwood Vienna 18 wooden dining chair has a rich European history and is thought of by many as the quintessential Viennese café chair and dining chair. The Thonet No.18, also commonly called the Vienna Café chair, was produced by Michael Thonet and Sons. Michael Thonet was a German cabinet maker who pioneered the use of bentwood furniture design. Thonet began experimenting with the new forms in the 1830s.

Using steam to make the wood more pliable, Thonet would use one piece of wood to create the chair’s back rest and back legs, then add a seat and front legs. This structure has become the very standard of what we call a bentwood chair, influencing the designs of every bentwood chair that came after it.

Our Original Bentwood Vienna 18 wooden dining chair is designed by Michael Thonet and crafted from beechwood as shown here in a warm walnut finish. The timber seat of our Original Bentwood Vienna 18 wooden dining chair has an embossed with a beautiful, subtle starburst pattern like a Japanese sun. This beautiful seat detail adds a distinctive, custom feel to an already stunning chair. Our Michael Thonet designed No.18 original chair is incredibly durable making the Original Bentwood Vienna 18 wooden dining chair suitable for both commercial and residential use. Ideal for use in your kitchen, our Original Bentwood Vienna 18 wooden dining chair works well with many different table styles.

 

Made in Poland in the same factory for over 150 years

With each original bentwood item purchased from Relax House you are acquiring a little piece of history. These are hand made using a combination of heat, steam and pressure in a time-honoured tradition of man versus nature.

The unique wood bending technique was originated in the 19th century by Michael Thonet. For over a century now, we have carried on with this amazing craft, creating timeless furniture for generations to come. We act with respect to people and nature around us

Since the very beginning, our company\'s operation has been based on Michael Thonet\'s extraordinary legacy.

If you take the time to admire you will notice that each product is unique using many actual pieces of European beechwood. Based on the nature of natural wood, items may vary in grain, colour, texture and shape.

It is important to note that any stress marks in the timber from the production process will not exacerbate over time. Stresses caused in the bending and joining process are what make these items so impressive. This can be more prevalent in the painted options as the paint tends to highlight these natural blemishes.

Just like us no two are the same. 

* Actual colours and design may vary slightly due to different screen settings, the lighting on the photoshoot and other factors.
