Adolf Loos and Josef Frank adopted this model inspired by 18th-century Windsor chairs. The prototype of this piece of bentwood furniture can be found in the 1904 Thonet catalogue. Josef Frank used this model in several Viennese institutions as well as in the exhibition “Vienna and the Viennese”, held in Vienna’s Messepalast in 1927, where he designed a “model room for the apartments of the city of Vienna”.
