For its first collaboration with Gebrüder Thonet Vienna, Dainelli Studio designs Jannis, a collection of upholstered furniture with a strong link to the contract sector.
The aesthetic is minimalist but at the same time a little bit twee, typical of ‘70s design.
In Dainelli Studio’s project, the frame and the cushions’ solid shape – featuring practical curves but also a strong character – are bound together by the graphically powerful wooden elements.
This contemporary rigor inspired by the past defines the Jannis collection, which reveals its personality through its details: the wooden structure, that appears light but is actually solid, embraces the seat cushion and the back. The front leg rises upwards to define the thin outline of the armrest, ending in a brass semi spherical tip.
At the back, the leg is supported by a small wooden arch, an element congruent with the heritage of Gebrüder Thonet Vienna.
