bentwood | m99
Design: Architect Adolf Krischanitz
Inspired by Vienna’s coffee houses, the Austrian architect Adolf Krischanitz adds the classic bentwood chairs “m99” to his “bentwood collection“. The frame consists of varnished beech wood, which has been bent using the traditional bentwood technique. The wooden chair is available either with an open or a plywood back rest, with or without cutouts. In addition to the molded seat, a seat with wickerwork can be ordered.
