For 200 years, Thonet's timeless chairs have symbolized the pleasure of getting together, sitting together and celebrating the joys of life. Marco Dessí, Italian designer based in Vienna, created the 520 upholstered chair inspired by the concept of the Café Thonet and reinterpreted in a contemporary key.
The variants make this chair ideal not only for the dining table: comfort is combined with the visual lightness of the seat, elegance recalls the culture and history of the classic Thonet bentwood. In the Dessí design, the surfaces of the seat and back, free between the curved wood elements, are filled with comfortable padding. The construction allows for variants with and without armrests. The possible combinations with a wide range of different materials allow a wide use of the collection ranging from sophisticated dining to executive meeting.
For the 520, Dessí designed two backrests, with armrests (520 PF) and without armrests (520 P). The possibility of choosing and combining different wood surfaces and coatings allows you to customize the 520 to your liking by adapting this seating model to a wide variety of settings: from high-level catering to the dining room or meeting table.
