The Cafe Museum Bentwood Chair was designed in 1898 by Austrian architecture Adolf Loos. The chair was designed for one of this famous architect's projects in Vienna. It was designed to be highly functional as it is light, strong, and comfortable to enjoy a coffee while sitting.
Adolf Loos was a highly influential architect at the turn of the 20th century. His emphasis on abandoning popular ornamental styles of the 19th century was highlighted in his book "Ornament and Crime". In this book he goes into a great amount of detail about his "passion for smooth and precious surfaces". Clearly Loos was a precursor to the modernist movement.
The Cafe Museum Bentwood Chair was originally built by Michael Thonet's bentwood factory. The chair was never mass produced until recently. The Cafe Museum Bentwood Chair is still being used at the cafe.
The Adolf Loos Cafe Museum Bentwood Chair is also available with a wood veneer seat.
