Thonet S43 dining chair by Mart Stam


Sett of six S43 cantilevered dining chairs in black with chrome frame, designed by Mart Stam for Gebruder Thonet, Germany.

Designed / launched by whom/when Designed in 1931 for Gebruder Thonet Germany, the S43 is a true representation of Bauhaus Design by the Dutch Architect, Mart Stam (b1899-1986).

The Designer’s Inspiration A “new objectivity’ focussing foremost on lightness, durability and comfort via cantilever.

Fabrication Black stained, steam-bent solid European beechwood, bright chrome plated tubular steel cantilever frame, black rivets.

Hidden Features “Due to the flex of the cantilevered frame, the chair has a surprising comfort, rendering upholstery frivolous and unnecessary”.

Design Consigned Stylist Superb example of early Bauhaus minimalism and the simplicity of the cantilever chair. We love this stylish ‘Melbourne black’ edition. An easy care, use every day chair that will last a lifetime.

DC Collector Authentic originals, made, under exclusive artistic copyright since 1931, by Thonet. The S43 is an exemplary example of the restrained Bauhaus style and the arrival of the cantilever chair.

DC Insider When a trained joiner turned leftist reformer experimented with some disused gas pipes, a new style of chair was born. Stam secured copyright for his chair, which Thonet retains exclusively today.

Stamp or Mark of authenticity Base stamped Thonet.
