The Michael Thonet Kontor Bentwood Chair is a classic addition to any office or home seeking the famed bentwood look. This model uses a wooden seat and attractive open back. The Kontor Bentwood Swivel Chair is height adjustable from a seat height of 27 1/4" up to 35 1/2" making it usable near almost any desk. Our bentwood chairs come from original factories located in Eastern Europe. Original machinery and jigs are used to complete the process of creating these magnificent modern classics.
In 1861 Michael Thonet found the perfect location to build a new mass production bentwood chair factory. Eastern Moravia (Czech Republic) provided the optimal conditions of large beechwood forests, inexpensive labor, and a railway to transport bentwood furniture inexpensively throughout Europe. Only one of these early factories is still in existence, Ton a.s.
Using the same techniques for over 150 years, this bentwood furniture maker still follows old-world processes for manufacturing. The bentwood furniture you receive now, is essentially the same as one might receive in a home in Austria in the 1800s.
