Billy Wilder (“Some Like It Hot”, “Sunset Boulevard”) wasn’t only one of the greatest Hollywood directors of all time – 21 Academy Award nominations and six wins – but a huge fan of Michael Thonet’s work. At age seven he fell in love with a Thonet rocking chair, owned by his grandmother, who ran a hotel in Galicia. Thonet’s novel wood-bending method and the model kit system of his works changed the furniture industry substantially.
