Michael Thonet’s bentwood café chair of 1859 is one of the most iconic furniture pieces to emerge from Austria. In 2013, Vienna-based designer Thomas Feichtner reinterpreted the design for Czech company TON, honoring the original production processes while introducing a molded-wood seat as a way to bridge contemporary and traditional furniture design.

silver display cases for food
Table landscapes were popular in the 18th and 19th centuries, and it’s this tradition that inspired Charlotte Talbot, a French designer who works in Konstantin Grcic’s Munich studio. She collaborated with Wiener Silber Manufactur, a silversmith established in Vienna in 1882, on a series of display pieces that juxtapose traditional silver with HI-MACS, an ultra-durable engineered surface.
