THANK YOU FOR YOUR REQUEST
We will be in touch soon.
The talented duo from Denmark, GamFratesi recently designed a new furniture line for Gebrüder Thonet.
The new furniture line is composed of a two-seater sofa, armchair, office chair, desk, and a pair of high- and low-backed dining chairs. The new designs will bring a fress look to any mid century, contemporary or minimalist living space, or as well to a home office.
The upholstered Targa sofa and armchair rest on a steam-bent wooden frame – a characteristic of Gebrüder Thonet‘s furniture – with a backrest that incorporates a rattan section with rounded edges.
“The Vienna cane is a typical Thonet element,” GamFratesi told Dezeen. “In the case of the sofa the cane plays a small decorative detail, serving as a small screen and creating an interesting connection between wood and upholstery.”
The cane panelling is repeated in the Allegory desk, which includes a large circular screen that echoes the backrest of a chair. The weave of the cane serves a double purpose, offering support to the furniture as well as a place to store and display postcards or other papers.
An accompanying three-legged office chair has a rattan seat and a singular curved strip of wood that forms a backrest.
The Morris chairs – a pair of upholstered seats with cane-patterned backs – come in a choice of two different backrest heights, and are a new interpretation of Gebrüder Thonet’s signature Thonet chair.
