Gebrüder Thonet / Twelve Chairs, Six Armchairs / Vienna / 1904

GEBRÜDER THONET

designed and executed by: Gebrüder Thonet, Vienna, 1904, model no. 511

bent beech stained to rosewood and polished, reupholstered with a new Viennese Secessionist fabric, excellent condition

chairs: H 99 cm, SH 47 cm, W 43 cm, D 41 cm
armchairs: H 104 cm, SH 48 cm, W 54 cm, D 58 cm

The pieces from the 511 series, which includes a desk, chairs, armchairs, a settee and a rocking chair, are amongst the most elegant Jugendstil furniture ever produced by Gebrüder Thonet. Even today it has not been possible to determine the designer. The most likely would be Marcel Kammerer. It was certainly not Josef Hoffmann since at this time he was accepting commissions from the competition: J. &. J. Kohn.
