Cane Rocking Chair | Model n.10 | Michael Thonet | Germany | 1860s

Michael Thonet was born in 1796 in Boppard am Rhein, Germany.  Carpenter and furniture designer Michael Thonet is famed for the invention of bentwood—a revolutionary process that played a key role in the development of the modern design movement.

Thonet opened his eponymous woodworking shop in his hometown in 1819. In the early 1840s, he began experimenting with bending and gluing laminated battens together, which resulted in the Boppard Chair (1841), the first furniture design to use bentwood.
