The shape of the chair’s legs is another special feature: rounded on the outer side, straight on the inner side – a design that alludes to the horseshoe shape of the seating surface. The bentwood seat frame and the handcrafted seat covered with canework refer to the 214, the archetype of a Thonet chair.
