Gebruder Thonet Vienna, 2024

The You seating project was born from the intent to combine aesthetics and functionality.
In particular, there was a desire to decline the company’s typical formal language in a chair suitable for sociality, with an extremely functional character because of its vertical stackability.
The bent-wood arch that joins the legs acts both a graphic element and a functional one. In the first case it designs the chair hallmark, as seen from its most characteristics point of view, the lateral one; but it also becomes a structural element for sealing, as well as functional for stackability. The ends of the arch, in fact, house a rubbery element that allow the wood to not be ruined, when stacking.
The result is a bistro seat made entirely of wood, accessorizable with a soft pad, designed for small spaces, where stackability is a central requirement.
