This is a classic case of improvement.

The couch was refurbished 150 years ago with a classic design by Vienna's Gebruder Thonet.

The earliest version of the chair was made of wood, and after the improvement, the leather and metal sang the leading role, which greatly improved the comfort and fashion.


In addition, the back and back position of the metal chair can be adjusted by inserting the legs into different holes in the seat cushion, and the whole design is more humanized.

The designers hope to reflect the relationship between furniture and people and their environment by combining industrial steel tubes with wood that needs to be polished by hand.

According to the design description, the steel pipe has different shapes, which makes the chair shape more beautiful and recognizable, which also enables the chair to provide support for the user's back in different ways.

In addition, due to the flexibility of steel hind legs, stability and comfort will also be improved.
