    Also known as J. & J. Kohn, the company which began production in 1870 became recognized for the simple clarity of their unpretentious, mass-produced work. Founded in 1849 by a father and son with the motto “Be one step ahead,” Jacob & Josef Kohn was the main competitor of Thonet, whose designs became ubiquitous as seating for cafes and gardens. Kohn revolutionized the furniture industry at the beginning of the 20th Century by introducing pieces designed by celebrated Wiener Werksatte architects/designers such as Joseph Hoffmann and Koloman Moser. These designs focused on creating elegant bentwood furniture suitable for domestic interiors. From then on, bentwood furniture was no longer an anonymous industrial product for the mass market, but became part of the modernist aesthetic.
