Thonet’s Modern Heritage Collection, designed by Q Design, honors Thonet’s early 20th century innovations in tubular steel furniture with an entirely new array of seating, tables, storage units, and shelving, all inspired by Thonet’s original design library from the 1920’s and 30’s. Thonet’s Modern Heritage Collection builds on the distinctive influence of Marcel Breuer, Mart Stam, and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe to create fresh, original furniture that retains the airy aesthetic of these classics, while using innovative forms, materials and functionalities to address contemporary design needs.
Designed for Collaboration, the collection is ideal for meeting rooms and open plan environments, or indeed any public space that needs to flex for a variety of applications, the Modern Heritage Collection is by any measure a large collection. It includes a lounge chair; stool; coffee, dining, and conference room tables; and a unique stand up community table with integrated storage. The collection also offers storage cabinets, an expandable bookshelf system, and a media cabinet. The one-inch diameter steel tubing, fashioned by the latest CNC bending techniques, provides a consistent architectural element across the entire collection.
