View the 811 Natural Hoffmann Bar Stool with Wooden Seat and Cane Backrest by for TON.
Michael Thonet's company designed the 811 bentwood cane bar stool in the 1920s. Sometimes also called the "Prague chair" the 811 bentwood chair is often attributed to Josef Hoffmann, but is more likely the design of Josef Frank. The A811 bentwood cane bar stool was first introduced as the A64F and had a different version of front legs than later versions. The 811 bentwood cane bar stool is also one of the first versions of bentwood chairs to be offered in a variety of colored finishes that were not previously offered. The 811 bentwood cane bar stool was one of the company's most popular 20th-century designs and is still widely used by designers worldwide.
Josef Hoffmann is well known for the simple, restrained, yet visually interesting dining chairs – several intended for cafés – that he designed early in the 20th century. The influence of the Arts and Crafts movement can be seen in his work, but Hoffmann also embraced the industrial age. Rather than rejecting traditional decoration, he succeeded in making it serve structural principles, which he believed should determine the forms of buildings, interiors and objects. Some view the 811 Cane Hoffmann Bar Stool as a new classic.
Whether admiring one of his chairs or the Sanatorium Purkersdorf he designed in 1903, you can see Hoffmann’s emphasis on straight, unadorned lines, characteristics that are in keeping with the style of the Viennese Secession. The Hoffmann Armchair (1925), designed in collaboration with Josef Frank, is made at the bentwood factory founded by Michael Thonet in 1861.
