Joan Burgasser

In a recent comment I gave to the post The Cantilever Chair: By Mart Stam, by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe or by Marcel Breuer? I first came across Joan Burgasser as a former employee for many years of Thonet USA. It appears she was in charge of marketing and kept a finr archive of Thonet which off course has a rich history. But also she has designed at least one chair that Thonet USA featured: A tubular tub club chair

Gamfratesi’s new Targa Lounge Chair for Thonet Vienna

Gebrüder Thonet Vienna GmbH, now known as Wiener GTV Design, is the Italian/Danish design child of StineGam and Enrico Fratesi, better known as GamFratesi. They recently completed their Targa collection by adding two final designs that exemplify a new idea of comfort and style. The collection is small but robust, consisting of two different sofas, a pouf, and a lounge chair. Each of the pieces comes in striking but neutral colors that are bound to make a statement. The chairs are made of bent beech with an upholstered backrest and Vienna straw border. Soft and curvy, Targa is sleek and luxurious, but not too stuffy. Its round shape encourages intimate and cozy socializing, and is perfect for residential spaces with an unconventional twist.

2seat is a chair with two faces that invites you to interact in a new manner with the most often used object, the chair. It is an interactive design due to the fact that by simply turning the chair over, you transform it into a low chair, and the process can be reversed. Both sides are carefully designed, in relation one to each other, in order to control the final volume but without compromising the ergonomy of either one.

Material: birch plywood with natural finish lacquer.

Sizes: L 810 mm x l 400 mm x h 790 mm
