The Thonet 209 chair is a classic for its economy of design. The entire chair consists of only six parts. With its simplicity and organic form, it resembles a sculpture. It is known as the Le Corbusier chair because the architect was fascinated with it and used it in many of his buildings in the 1920s. According to Le Corbusier "this chair has nobility."
