These designs are probably the most famous and most-produced tubular steel classics. Their most important property is the sophisticated constructive form and ingenious aesthetic combination of tubular steel, wood, and wicker. The design goes back to Breuer's productive years in Berlin from 1928 until 1931 during which, after leaving the Bauhaus, he worked as an independent architect and interior designer and realized a number of grand interiors and designed numerous pieces of furniture. Thonet has been producing these models since 1930. Due to the aesthetic reduction and clarity, they are suitable for many uses: conference rooms, waiting areas, restaurants, and homes.

Without (S 32) or with armrests (S 64). Frame chrome-plated tubular steel. Wooden parts in stained beech or varnished. Lining with wicker,* plastic mesh or upholstered and covered with leather or fabric.

*For seats that are subject to heavy use, a transparent plastic mesh is available for mounting beneath the wicker cane.
