Thonet, arguably one of Europe’s most important contemporary designer furniture makers, are looking for your photos.
While on the one hand it’s a nice little cheap PR for them, on the other hand it’s a good opportunity to profitably utilises a few of those old photos you have lying around.
Because, until the end of August Thonet are offering all the chance to win a trip to New York, including a visit to the Museum of Modern Art.
All you have to do is send them in some photos of the Thonet chair 214 “in its usual environment or in a specially selected environment; experiments are welcome too.”
Theoretically it should be your chair. However, if you neither posses a Thonet 214 nor plan to buy one before the end of August, fret not; they are a regular feature in hotels, cafes and museums. Just keep your eyes open and your camera poised.
Alternatively if you have neither a Thonet 214 nor someone to take to New York, combine the solutions to the problems and find someone with a Thonet 214, photograph their chair and when you win take them to New York.
It’s a whole new form of social networking … or perhaps better put its social networking 1.0 😉
Whatever, full details can be found at Thonet.
