This particular Horgen Glarus vintage/production were favourites of Le Corbusier, obviously very similar to Thonet & Kohn chairs. The very beautiful bentwood sections are slightly heavier and more robust than chairs by Thonet and Kohn. In terms of design and quality, it has ranked among the world's finest furniture makers for more than 130 years. Le Corbusier, for example, exhibited chairs crafted by horgenglarus at his «Pavillon de l'Esprit Nouveau» at the «Exposition internationale des Arts décoratifs» in Paris as perfect representations of contemporary and trend-setting interior design.
