Gebrüder Thonet Vienna’s LOOP Chair

Award winning LOOP dining chair designed by India Mahdavi for Gebrüder Thonet Vienna

The LOOP chair was born out of an extraordinary collaboration between female designer India Mahdavi and legendary Gebrüder Thonet Vienna (GTV).  LOOP was conceived from Mahdavi’s line drawing which she made without lifting the pencil off the paper, making a truly original, beautiful, special design.

This process combined with GTV’s legendary craft in hand-bent steamed beech wood, makes LOOP come to life as an animated and whimsical form.

As Mahdavi says, “Gebrüder Thonet Vienna is the only manufacturer in the world that enables you to translate a free-hand drawings by giving it a wooden materiality of that quality.”

Available as a dining chair, lounge chair or banquette-bench, LOOP is comfortable, elegant, playful, and stylish.

Equally enjoyable at home, in a restaurant, bar, lobby or entrance.

Recipient of Elle Décor International’s 2023 award for best chair design, the LOOP chair and banquette are offered in frame and fabric colors that create a visual tension, being similar though not identical, and compliment each other.

With clear form and minimal material, LOOP is a proud descendant of the iconic Michael Thonet No.14 chair, the first industrialized product of which over 50,000,000 were sold before 1930 – and still going strong. 

They embody all that is historical and special about Gebruder Thonet Vienna and are timeless pieces that can be enjoyed and passed on to future generations.
