Adolf Schncek, chair A63F, Thonet 1928

2x Chair A63F, Adolf G. Schneck, Thonet-Mundus, 1928

Only in the last few years has it come to light that this chair was designed by Professor Adolf G. Schneck. Previously it was thought to have been the work of Josef Frank. This was in part due to both of the designers involved in The Werkbund group having designs made by Thonet in the same era. The furniture designed by both were exhibited at the Werkbund exhibition in 1928. Designs between the two were similar, some would say indistinguishable – especially Frank’s dining A402 and Schneck’s A63 (see our Journal post: Adolf G. Schneck and the Weissenhof Estate).

The chairs have been professionally repainted in the past 20 years in a red matching the original. Perfect structural condition.
