German furniture maker, Thonet, has launched a new outdoor furniture collection based on classic modernist designs—including those by Bauhaus masters Marcel Breuer, Mies van der Rohe, and Mart Stam. Debuting at the IMM Cologne trade fair this past week, the Thonet All Seasons collection includes 4 chairs designed by Stam, Breuer and Mies, and an ottoman and side table designed by Breuer, in addition to a side table designed by Thonet in 1933.  Each design re-interprets the originals’ tubular steel applications as their weather-resistant outdoor counterparts.

Mart Stam’s S34 armchair, shown with accompanying Thonet side table, has been reengineered by Thonet for outdoor use.

The Thonet All Seasons outdoor furniture collection remakes four classic chair designs, including the S33 and S34 Chairs by Dutch designer Mart Stam, a tubular steel cantilevered design that dates back to 1925.  Leveraging 21st Century technology to upgrade the chairs’ tubular steel frames, Thonet has remade the chairs into versatile iterations of the originals, amenable to both indoor and outdoor use. A range of 12 vivid fade-resistant steel colors give the chairs’ profile a distinctively contemporary character, while mesh upholstery in corresponding colorways allow for myriad mix-and-match frame and upholstery combinations.

Marcel Breuer’s S35 lounge chair and matching footstool, first introduced in 1930, are included in the Thonet All Seasons collection, having been updated for the outdoors with a choice of mesh or cushioned upholstery. Breuer’s tubular steel cantilever chair was revolutionary for its construction, a single uninterrupted line of steel that comprised seat, back, and arms.

Mies van der Rohe’s classic S533 cantilevered chair, designed in 1927, has been given a four seasons upgrade by Thonet, its tubular steel frame reengineered with ThonetProtect® surface treatment for outdoor use, and its original upholstery choices (wicker or leather) replaced with UV resistant mesh. Of the the company’s All Seasons launch, Thonet explains: “The goal was to create a collection that is independent of the restrictions of weather, location or function throughout the year. The refined simplicity of the selected tubular steel icons offered tremendous creative latitude for this venture.”
