After several years of experience Bentwood Art (Gogani) furniture is proud of reminding Thonet style furniture through his bent products.
Michael Thonet (1796-1871) was born on 2.7.1796 as son of a tanner in Boppard. He completed an apprenticeship as cabinet maker and, at the age of 23, established his own business as joiner and cabinet maker in Boppard. Thonet experiments with bending steamed wood to create furniture; Thonet and his sons begin to produce innovative "bentwood" furniture, which becomes know for being practical & refined.
Inn 1855 the Model No. 14 – the same model (code C101) in our catalogue – which becomes Thonet`s most famous chair design, is developed in the Boppard workshop.
In 1856 Gebruder Thonet receives a patent for the bentwood process of manufacturing; the Thonet family has perfected assembly-line production, becoming a major manufacturer of bentwood furniture.
The phenomenon about producing bentwood furniture must be quite interesting for who knows the hand arts. Forming natural wood (not slice wood) such as (walnut wood or white beech) to the direction of its fiber (bending wood) results in its resistance, beauty, slimness and lightness. All the joints in our products are with bolts and nut.

Nowadays in some countries, the same style has numerous production, but there is massive difference between our style and these products, this is the main point which is worthy in our production procedures.
The mentioned producers do not use natural wood; they use many parts of slice wood and then will shaped these parts by some machineries easily and there is no dependence of human hand here and even with no allocating much time for that, we call them curved wood not bentwood products.
