To commemorate Thonet’s 200th anniversary, the MAK is presenting a major exhibition on modern furniture, in which the signature bentwood furniture of the world famous company is placed in the context of contemporary technological, typological, aesthetic, and historical developments. Thonet’s bentwood chairs are compared with chairs made of tubular steel and plastic as well as with classic office chairs and avant-garde furniture experiments.

In 1969, the furniture exhibition Sitzen 69 [Seating 69] took place in the Austrian Museum of Applied Arts (today’s MAK) in which a comprehensive selection of dignified “joiner’s chairs” from Scandinavia, Italy, Germany, and Austria was presented. However, the many colorful and trendy seats that today seem so characteristic of this epoch, were missing: The exhibition had made a last heroic attempt to reply to an increasingly pronounced consumer and throwaway society with traditional of high-quality, artisanal furniture.

Otto Prutscher (1880–1949) was an architect and designer, an exhibition designer, teacher, and member of all the important arts and crafts movements—from the Secession to the Werkbund.
