When I visited the MAK design museum in Vienna a few weeks back, I was struck by the exhibition design choice for their Thonet furniture. Since writing a post about Thonet cafe chairs, I knew I would have to see some in person before I left the city.
The chairs are lined up behind white screens so their shadows create a graphic hallway. Displaying them in this way accentuates their simplicity and lines.
