The Best Thing We Saw in Milan Today: India Mahdavi for Gebrüder Thonet Vienna

Sight Unseen is on the ground at the Milan Furniture Fair right now and we’ll be bringing you loads of coverage next week, but meanwhile we’re we’re featuring quick hits on the best things we’re seeing as we go. This is a simple one, but we just we felt drawn this year to the stylish weirdness of India Mahdavi’s new Loop dining chair for Gebrüder Thonet Vienna, which takes the heritage brand’s historical tubular bent-wood frame style and turns it into something modern, playful but not silly, and with one of the best two-tone color schemes we’ve seen in awhile. The brand is also launching the Ample chair by Luca Nichetto, shown below in a similarly nice all-green scheme. See them on view this week at the Salone del Mobile fairgrounds, Pavilion 4, booth G05.
