The renowned coffee house chair stands as an iconic symbol, widely regarded as the most successful mass-produced product globally to date, marking a pivotal moment in the history of modern furniture. Its inception was rooted in a groundbreaking technique – the bending of solid wood – a method innovated and perfected by Michael Thonet during the 1850s, marking the initiation of serial furniture production. This era also witnessed the introduction of an ingenious distribution model: 36 disassembled chairs could be efficiently packed into a one cubic meter box, shipped worldwide, and then assembled on-site. With its clear and minimalist aesthetics, this classic masterpiece has adorned a diverse range of settings for over 150 years.

In terms of sustainability, the wood for the 214 is meticulously sourced from sustainably managed forests. Its exceptional quality and timeless aesthetics contribute to its remarkable durability, facilitating easy repairs at any time. These commendable features garnered recognition from the jury of the German Sustainability Award, bestowing upon our enduring model, which has gracefully weathered more than 160 years of changing fashions and trends, the honor of winning in the Design category for 2021.
