BENTWOOD AND BEYOND

The Exhibition

On the occasion of the 200-year anniversary of the company Thonet, the MAK presents an extensive exhibition on Modern furniture. In 1842, the German cabinetmaker Michael Thonet moved to Vienna: Here he was able to perfect his own invention of bentwood furniture and found the greatest furniture empire of the 19th century. With the No 14 Chair produced from 1859 onward, the company Thonet created not only one of the so far most sold pieces of furniture in the world but also an unchallenged classic of design. The exhibition at the MAK shows the fundamental importance of the company Thonet for the design of Modern furniture and places its characteristic and world-famous bentwood furniture into the context of contemporary technological, typological, aesthetic, and historical developments.

The Format WEDNESDAYS at the MAK

These dialogue-focused guided tours of the current exhibitions or on collection-specific topics are followed by a deeper conversation at the restaurant Salonplafond im MAK. WEDNESDAYS at the MAK takes place at 3 p.m. on every 3rd Wednesday of the month (except July, August, and December).
