Thonet Re-imagined, Haus der Kunst, Munich, 2019 On 8 November, 2019, we opened an exhibition in the event room of the Haus der Kunst, Munich, to mark the 200th Anniversary of the Thonet furniture company. The exhibition was subsequently shown at our gallery and featured works by 19 artists created at our invitation for this anniversary event. The works deal in very different ways with the myth of Thonet, its formal language and its effects on our contemporary culture. In addition, we presented furniture pieces by 3 designers (Konstantin Grcic, James Irvine and Jörg Schellmann) who modify Thonet classics and bring them into the present, both formally and in terms of production and marketing.
