Thonet Folding Table T211

About

Rare Folding table T211 designed by Thonet manufactured In Germany, circa 1930. In good original condition, with minor wear consistent with age and use, preserving a beautiful patina. In the 1830s, Thonet began trying to make furniture out of glued and bent wooden slats. His first success was the Bopparder Schichtholzstuhl (Boppard layerwood chair) in 1836. Thonet gained substantial independence by acquiring the Michelsmu¨hle, the glue factory that made the glue for this process, in 1837. However, his attempts to patent the technology failed in Germany (1840) as well as in Great Britain, France and Russia (1841). Thonet's essential breakthrough was his success in having light, strong wood bent into curved, graceful shapes by forming the wood in hot steam. This enabled him to design entirely novel, elegant, lightweight, durable and comfortable furniture, which appealed strongly to fashion - a complete departure from the heavy, carved designs of the past - and whose aesthetic and functional appeal remains to this day. Michael Thonet’s sons, Franz, Michael junior, August, Josef and Jakob, joined the company Gebru¨der Thonet in Vienna in 1853. After Michael Thonet’s death in 1871, they jointly managed the company. They developed new machines and work processes and presented numerous additional developments and new furniture designs. At around the turn of the century, the third generation of Thonets then became active in the company: Karl, Julius, Theodor, Alfred, Victor and Richard also designed a wide range of new furniture and products over the course of their activities.
