Gebrüder Thonet Vienna

Cane furniture might bring to mind a vintage look, but Gebrüder Thonet Vienna dispels that notion with modern shapes and styles for its collections. Its latest collaboration with London-based industrial designer Michael Anastassiades is no different: the N.200 lounge chair pairs the lightness of woven cane with the sinuous curves of the bentwood frame, which bring to mind the pure forms and graphic shapes that Anastasiades is known for.

Entitled Modern Reflections, the collection features 150 items which include furniture, lighting, textiles and stationery, with a touch of retro charm.

Designed by Danish designer Johannes Torpe, the elegant look of the Heartbreaker sofa features a playful twist—the armrests form the halves of a heart, which can be combined or separated to break or form a heart. “Breaking up with the woman I thought I was going to marry provided the inspiration for the Heartbreaker sofa system,” divulges Torpe. “As an old saying goes, the greatest love songs were written by songwriters with broken hearts, and that’s how it was for me when I designed this sofa.”
