Thonet celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus with a limited edition of the cult cantilever chair S 533 F by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. The project was developed by two well-known designers from Hamburg Besau and Marguerre, who created a variant of the historic model, adding armrests and new colors that more than ever make up a design model that seems to have no age.

The two new variants come with a pearly chrome frame combined with the leather material; the first in shades of anthracite, the second champagne color. Both have been designed specifically for the centenary to add a luxury and functional touch to the original model. As the two designers say:

“L’impiego volutamente limitato di materiali, l’eleganza delle linee e la trasparenza nell’effetto, caratteristiche peculiari del modello S 533, ci hanno suggerito di riprendere il concetto ‘less is more’ di Mies van der Rohe ricercando, allo stesso tempo, il contrasto fra funzionalità e morbidezza”.

Two complementary chairs have emerged from the project, which you can find here.
