MUJI and Thonet
Just when you thought they couldn't get any cooler, Muji announces that they've joined up with Thonet to re-imagine the classic bentwood and Bauhaus chairs.
An updated version of Thonet's No.14 Bentwood Chair (originally designed in 1859 and still relevant) and a bent-steel chair inspired by the original Bauhaus chair (1920) have been designed by Muji while Thonet will remain the manufacturer. So far they're planning on a February '09 release.
