Furnished by Thonet: Restaurants at the Van Gogh Museum Amsterdam and
the Jaarbeurs Utrecht



100 chairs from Thonet's program 330 ST in dark gray and white have been adorning the Café Le Tambourin at the Van Gogh Museum Amsterdam since the summer of 2013. The Restaurant Pieter Christiaan at the Utrecht Jaarbeurs trade fair center was outfitted with new Thonet furniture at the beginning of the year as well: more than 200 chairs from program 190 in yellow, blue and white and over 40 tables from the programs 1130 and S 1125 form the new decor for dining there.


Clear lines and calm colors - the Amsterdam interior designers of D/DOCK used these principles when preparing the interior design concept for the museum café in Amsterdam. The chair 330 by Läufer + Keichel (2012) can be ideally integrated into the environment due to its straight-lined and timeless formal language. Its stackability contributes to the optimal solution for the catering sector. The redesign of the restaurant took place during the renovation of the Van Gogh Museum.


Conversion work was the reason for a new look in the Restaurant Pieter Christiaan as well. In addition to numerous Thonet chairs from the series 190 (design: Lievore Altherr Molina, 2012), 36 barstools of the same program were used - special designs that lend a casual lounge atmosphere to the restaurant. The Dutch designer Edward van Vliet designed the restaurant area of the Jaarbeurs trade fair center.
