Concept

Solid wood chairs - beautifully designed, elegant, comfortable, and robust. Suitable for furnishing restaurants, cafés, and homes. Program 454 takes as its standard a chair that has been furnishing the traditional restaurant Kronenhalle in Zurich since the 1930s. The Kronenhalle is a popular and famous meeting point where Gottfried Keller, Max Frisch, Friedrich Dürrenmatt and James Joyce frequented almost every day. This chair is a remarkable example of an anonymous in-house design of high design quality. Stefan Zwicky has realized it in a way that allows Thonet to mass produce it.

Four legged frame solid beech wood, stained. With or without armrest. Molded plywood seat or upholstered with leather or fabric. Gliders for hard or soft floors.
