Where form meets function

We’ve mentioned the collaborative project between Thonet and Muji before, but now that it is officially rolling it is worth revisiting both concept and product. Working with Muji, Thonet (an iconic German Furniture company) aims to bring affordable versions of classic designs to the market. Design within reach? Sorry.

Among the initial offerings are new versions of the famed bentwood chair and table, re-imagined by James Irvine, and a tubular steel desk designed by Konstantine Grcic. The chair, table, and desk all update the original forms without losing the integrity of the base idea. (via Retro to Go)
