iF Design Awards 2020 for GTV
14/02/2020 - The N.200 armchair by Michael Anastassiades and the RUE headboard by GamFratesi won the iF Design Award. Two new prestigious awards for Gebrüder Thonet Vienna GmbH, which has also been awarded in the last editions for the lounge chair Loie by Chiara Andreatti in 2019, Chignon by LucidiPevere in 2018 and the iconic Hideout by Front awarded with the 2016 IF Gold Award.
The iF Design Award has been one of the most important awards in the design industry for over 60 years. An important recognition that once again rewards GTV's ability to transform the heritage of the past into the future.

N.200 – design by Michael Anastassiades
The harmonious incorporation of traditional styles defines the new N.200 lounge chair from Michael Anastassiades. The piece provides a sophisticated expression of the Gebrüder Thonet Vienna style and its deep vocation for design innovation. The seat represents the perfect combination of the brand’s history and the tradition of bent beech-wood, whose roots stretch back into design culture for over two centuries. In continuation of the long-standing tradition of naming the seats with ascending numbers, N.200 celebrates the 200th anniversary of the opening of the very first joinery workshop, launched by Michael Thonet in Boppard in 1819.

With a deeply harmonious stylistic approach, the renowned designer has brought his poetic yet disciplined hand to some of the archetypal GTV design features: bent beech-wood and woven cane. These become the distinguishing features of N.200, where method and form come together to create a timeless chair with a deliberately clean, minimalist elegance. The Company and the designer share a focus on attention to detail: the black lacquered or natural stained wooden structure features curving that creates the armrests and feet with apparent simplicity, showcasing the high manufacturing standards at GTV, while the seat and backrest in woven cane contribute to the overall feeling of lightness.

RUE – design by GamFratesi
The RUE headboard encapsulates the clean lines and Nordic feel of the GamFratesi brand. Understated yet generous in its rounded forms, the headboard shows character with its use of different thicknesses to create a carefully calibrated arrangement of overlapping elements. Made from a structure in bent beech-wood, black lacquered or natural stained, the headboard is available in two versions: in the first, the insert in woven cane - an iconic GTV detail - is doubled up by the soft padding above, while in the second the woven cane is used for the internal elliptical insert, which sits on the outer frame.
