Wiener GTV Design (Gebrüder Thonet Vienna) is one of three European manufacturers of the original top-quality Thonet furniture. Woodworker Michael Thonet founded the company in 1853 and by 1865, Gebrüder Thonet already had 22 single-brand shops worldwide. The company’s success was based on the revolutionary wood bending method patented by Michael Thonet, resulting from more than fifty years of research and experimentation.

Today Gebrüder Thonet Vienna is part of the Moschini Group, and the brand has regained its leading role on the international scene. Wiener GTV Design’s new trajectory began in 2013 under Riccardo Pigati. In addition to its renewed manufacturing quality achieved by moving production to Italy, the company launched collections created by renowned designers in the Gebrüder Thonet tradition. In addition, the company focused on improving its contract sector for cafés, hotels, theatres and other public venues.

Jieldé

Brand Material See the Products Where to Shop

Jean-Louis Domecq drew his first draft of a lamp in the late 1940s. He was frustrated over the fact that there was not a light source, which met the demands of working in factory conditions.

His final draft of the lamp was finished in April 1950. It corresponded perfectly with the requirements needed, meaning the lamp was simple yet strong, and would fit into any kind of working station. Domecq spent from 1951 to 1952 industrializing this beautiful invention. In 1953 he created a company dedicated to the marketing of his lamp. He named the company Jieldé, after his initials.

Jieldé have expanded into floor lamps and reading lights in addition to the original. The lamps are hand cast from 100% aluminium, and then assembled by hand in Lyon, France and are individually numbered. Today, Jieldé is recognized as an icon of French industrial art.

Jieldé is a statement of quality, craftsmanship and provenance. A darling of professional interior designers, Jieldé can regularly be found on the cover of Elle Décor and other prestigious publications.

OOUT OF THE DARK is the importer in Finland and also operates in the Baltic countries and Scandinavia.
