Muji Manunfactured by Thocet

Japanese brand Muji and German furniture manufacturers Thonet have collaborated to produce two collections of tubular steel and bent wood furniture.

The beech, bent wood collection was designed by Milan-based, British designer James Irvine (creative director of Thonet) and features a single panel supporting the back of the chair, which aligns with the accompanying table top.

There are plans to enhance the collection in the near future. Both Muji and Thonet have collaborated with international designers in the past.
