The No. 30 Bentwood Chair, designed by August Thonet, became popular as part of a 1920s bentwood revival as architects Le Corbusier and Mart Stam used it in their buildings and environments. The simple and unadorned bentwood design appealed to them, as did the "industrial" nature of the chair. Modernist designers saw it as a product of rigorous functionalism, an item whose design was determined by its material and the method used to produce it. Le Corbusier used the No. 30 bentwood chairs in his commissions as dining or desk seating as early as 1922, as well as in his Pavilion at the 1925 Paris Exposition of Decorative Arts.
