This Vitra miniature 1:6 of actual size is an exact replica of Thonet & Sohne's No. 14 chair, designed in 1859-60. Thonet developed a bent-wood technique, which used steam pressure to shape solid wood in iron molds.
He also made a substantial contribution to our current concept of industrial design by creating a packaging system that was revolutionary for the late 1800s. The individual chair parts were packed in an extremely space-saving manner and then sent to their final destination, where they were first screwed together. Thonet combined new industrial production processes with unique aesthetics.
