Fukasawa has created the 130 chair series inspired by the classic Thonet bentwood chairs. “First, I perceived these chairs as design classics. But then I realised that their main quality lies in their sustainability and environmental friendliness: there is no material wastage, and the chairs are very lightweight,” says Fukasawa. “They meet all the requirements for a perfect product. I deeply respect this and therefore I have tried to base my designs for Thonet on the same philosophy. I wanted to create something very simple, something uncomplicated for Thonet.” The chair series is made up of solid-wood chairs and armchairs available in plain wood, with padded seats, or with fully upholstered seats and backrests. All models are available in beech and oak. The frame itself is composed of natural or stained beech or oak while the seats and backrests feature a textile-varnish finish.
