A piece of contemporary history: S 285 tubular steel desk Thonet

When designing the S 285, one could think that the famous designer Marcel Breuer had already anticipated how our working world would change and what significance the home office would take on. The elegant desk made of tubular steel is so modern and at the same time timeless that it perfectly complements every workspace , whether at home or in the office.

Moreover, the desk is a true piece of contemporary history, as it illustrates how well Breuer succeeded in combining the programmatic claim of the Bauhaus art and technology on a new level. The trained carpenter combined his knowledge of tubular steel with his experience in interior design to create a unique and harmonious design in the style of the new objectivity.

Thonet - 200 years of tradition

The Frankenberg-based manufacturer stands for durability and an irrepressible drive for innovation. Thonet was the first manufacturer to bring bentwood furniture onto the market and the first to sell tubular steel furniture . Michael Thonet founded his own workshop in Boppard am Rhein in 1819. In the 1830s he experimented with strips of veneer boiled in glue and is therefore regarded as the inventor of "furniture made of bent wood". in 1842, he was invited to Vienna by the Austrian state chancellor Prince Metternich and the coffee house culture there laid the foundation for Thonet's later success. Given this desire for innovation, it is not surprising that Thonet also cultivated links with the Bauhaus and Marcel Breuer. Thus Thonet implemented Breuer's experiments with cold-bent tubular steel and produced the famous cantilever chairs.

Material and format

The desk consists of a tubular steel frame and wooden inserts. It is 164 cm wide, 76 cm deep and 73 cm high.
