The Myra side chair is an authentic bentwood side chair design made using the original techniques pioneered in the 19th century by Michael Thonet. The Myra side chair is made by hand and machine, using traditional methods and steamed bentwood. The beech for this technique needs to be of the highest grade to withstand the steaming and bending processes. The wood is harvested responsibly from managed forests in Europe and complies with all EU timber regulations. This is reflected in the intergrity and performance of the product.
