The Thonet store at ‘THE SQUAIRE’ – a winning combination occupying some 240 m², the new store at Frankfurt airport allows the visitor to experience the latest collections by Thonet, among them future-oriented conference systems with integrated media technology and winning furniture ranges for the private and contract sectors, including chairs, tables, sofas, shelving systems and more. Alongside these there are Thonet’s famous bentwood and tubular steel classics, which are also part of the company’s current range. The Thonet store is aimed at professionals from the fields of architecture and interior design: retailers from Germany and Europe can get to the store in two or three hours by train, aeroplane or car. Visitors who simply want to while away a little time at ‘THE SQUAIRE’ can experience a little piece of the authentic world of Thonet: in this attractive new setting they can familiarise themselves with the firm’s rich tradition. THE SQUAIRE’s spectacular architecture provides the perfect backdrop for Thonet’s timeless, elegant designs. The company sees the store as the perfect platform on which it can convincingly demonstrate its approach to design. The new showroom will be overseen by Michael Thonet, the long-standing director of the Frankfurt-based Thonet Forum.
Thonet 2011 – a positive development the opening of another showroom clearly demonstrates once again that Thonet is investing in its future. After a much-needed restructuring at its Frankenberg base and the consolidation of all departments onto a single site, the company is now looking to strengthen its business abroad. To this end, the company is aiming to raise its market profile with the opening of its new showroom at Frankfurt airport and has also produced a bilingual Thonet collection book, which will appeal to both business clients and end users alike. These measures have all been taken on the basis of recent positive economic indicators: in 2011, Thonet has to date seen a double-figure increase in both turnover and new contracts over the previous year.

Stand B62 100% Design Earls Court
Hidden Art are a support organisation for designers and designer-makers, and have been taking part in 100% Design since the first event in 1995. They are sad to announce that 2011 will be their last 100% Design, as unfortunately they will be closing at the end of September, due to ongoing funding issues, although their e-shop will continue until the end of December.
However, Hidden Art intend on going out with a bang with their final stand. Based around the theme ‘Inspiring the Future’, they will be launching eight exciting new products from five designers. The collection of products continues Hidden Art’s track record in supporting small, innovative companies, ranging from a coat-stand inspired by a shard of ice, to vibrantly coloured fine-china bowls.
The designers have interpreted the theme in different ways: some of the products are futuristic-looking, some are manufactured in England (pointing towards a manufacturing future in the UK), and some adapt themselves to the modern home by space-saving and multi-tasking.
