Michael Thonet: "Stuhl Nr.14", 1859 This simple chair embodied innovative and radical methods of both processing and construction. 1850 Michael Thonet developed a process of steam bending laminated and solid wood rods and strips. This bentwood method allowed tight continiuous curves to be produced without the use of carving or of glued joints, and was hugely liberating in terms of time and skilled labour.
