Thornet Chair No. 14

On Friday I discussed with our study group, ways to remember individual chairs.  One of the true iconic chairs that deserves attention is Michael Thornet’s chair No. 14 or 214 as it is called today by the Thornet company.  The Bistro chair is comprised of 6 bentwood pieces, 10 screws and 2 bolts with nuts.  A cane seat was typically used to allow spilt liquid to pass through the seat.  Over 50 million of these chairs have been sold because of it’s inexpensive design and innovative “flat pack” design.
