The Michael Thonet BST73 bentwood stool can trace its origins back to the mid-1800s. This reproduction of the bentwood stool uses the traditional bentwood styles that one commonly associates with the designs of Michael Thonet.
Though the invention of the bentwood technique should be attributed to the American Samuel Gragg, it was Michael Thonet that experimented with the technique to an extreme level and made the bentwood chair one of the great commercial successes of all time. An infatuation with reducing the number of pieces used in the construction of furniture, Michael Thonet created techniques of bending wood on multiple planes. The techniques led to the development of phenomenal chair successes such as the legendary A14 and A18/14 bentwood chairs.
