    The company “Gebrüder Thonet”, founded in 1853, was known all around the world for its bentwood furniture. This technique enabled new forms, which gave the everyday objects of the time a dynamic appearance. Although this design cannot be clearly traced back to an artist in particular, its formal and stylistic characteristics nevertheless allow it to be attributed to the school of Otto Wagner.
    The design for this coat rack was first shown by the company “Gebrüder Thonet” in 1905. The steam-bent beech wood and the symmetrical construction with its 12 coat and hat hooks create a harmonious and balanced structure. The mahogany stained finish is characteristic of bentwood furniture made by the “Gebrüder Thonet”, and it precisely hit the nerve of the time. This coat rack was produced in their factory in Bistritz am Hostein, which was built in 1862. The design was so successful and popular that the rival company “Jacob & Josef Kohn” presented a very similar piece in 1916.
