Thonet goes with High-Tech Looks on S 774 Chair!
The new S 774 was developed in cooperation with Kegelmann Technik. Flowing lines and dynamic curves characterise its material’s three-dimensional effect that creates a subtle interplay of light and shadow.
The aesthetics formed by the new production method!
There is a reason why the seat shell’s glossy curved lines are reminiscent of luxury cars: the innovative RTM technique is a method deriving from the automotive sector. Carbon fibre reinforcement and a plastic core element are placed in a specially developed aluminium mould into which transparent epoxy resin is injected. The materials bond completely, creating what is known as a ‘composite’ in the industry.
In furniture production, this is a new technique that creates something like a ‘behind glass’ effect, which defines the chair’s special high-tech aesthetics.
