Thonet & Design

17 May - 02 Feb 2020 / Pinakothek der Moderne, Die Neue Sammlung, Munich, DE

From a one-man business to a global enterprise: We reflect on 200 years of furniture design as illustrated by the history of family company Thonet. The groundbreaking achievements of the early period – new technologies, new design methods, new distribution and marketing channels – are juxtaposed to developments in the 20th and early 21st century. See pioneering creations by designers from Ed Harlis via Verner Panton through to Norman Foster, Stefan Diez, Konstantin Grcic and Sebastian Herkner.
