swedish studio front has designed the ‘coat rack bench’ and ‘arch tables’ for furniture brand gebrüder thonet vienna. the collection is based on the company’s strong history and tradition of working with bent wood. the bench serves as both a coat rack and place to sit, merging the two functions together to create a new piece that still references the past, while the ‘arch tables’ feature round components that use bent wood as a main structural element.


the collection is being presented at salone internazionale del mobile, 2014 in milan.
