Michael Thonet set up his business in 1819 to sell his own furniture designs, which pioneered the bentwood process he had developed. The company he founded has gone on to become a globally respected name.
Its recently opened store in The Squaire at Frankfurt airport is part retail outlet, part showroom. The 240-square-metre space is light, open and welcoming. Showcasing the best of Thonet, it holds everything from stylish homeware to futuristic conference equipment.
This year, Thonet has also released a range of accessories, from tea cups to pendants and cufflinks, which make delightful souvenirs for any design devotee.
