With its Chair 77, TON updates an original design by legendary Czech furniture maker Michael Thonet, who began producing his iconic bentwood chairs in 1861. Using steam-bending techniques invented by Thonet, TON's expert craftsmen render European solid beech wood and beech plywood into a chair with timeless appeal. Chair 77 is characterized by its pairing of straight lines and gentle curves--the slim rectangular backrest is curved to welcome a sitter's back, and the chair's legs display a subtle flare. Underneath the seat, a manually bent rod mirrors the outline of the seat for an extra visual detail. The result is a well-composed chair that can be used at a dining table, desk, or as extra seating.
