About

1970s Thonet stacking dining chairs for the German military - green - set of eight. Commissioned by the Bundeswehr and made by Thonet these chairs were made for the German Military. It's not often we see coloured chairs so we snapped them up and we have them in green and blue (Blue are listed separately). Unusually they were made by Thonet. Founded in the early 19th Century by Michael Thonet, Thonet invented the process of steam bending wood under pressure and used this to design the classic bentwood chairs still in production today. In the 19th Century he had a large network of shops throughout Europe and was a huge furniture retailer. These chairs are built to last, strong steel frames with birch ply seats and backs. Measure: Seat height 45cm. Workshop report Our workshop team inspect every product and carry out any needed repairs to ensure that everything leaves us serviced and maintained ready for many more years of life. All of our vintage products show the rich beauty and history of their life with the knocks and bumps of many years of use and we try to minimise restoration to keep every piece as original as possible.
