Design Icon: Thonet Chair No. 14
The world's best selling chair when introduced in 1859 by Michael Thonet, a cabinet maker, was innovative in that it was made from machine-made and hand-made parts. Still in production 150 years later No. 14's consist of only six components. This first ready to assembly chair could cheaply and easily be shipped around the world. More than 50 million of these chairs have been sold.
