Not your grandma's Thonet chair

We are all familiar with the ubiquitous Thonet cafe chairs, but during the 1960s and 70s the company did some radical experimenting, applying their bentwood techniques to chrome and ply. This is an extremely rare Mid Century Thonet lounge chair in black leather, with a fantastic sculptural bent-ply frame. Ergonomic enough for the office, but you'll want it out where everyone can see it!
