Mundus

Mundus

Little is known of the early history of Mundus. At the beginning of the 20th Century their were two (amongst others) competing bentwood producers, J&J Kohn and Mundus. Both produced chairs in various factories throughout the Austro Hungarian empire. Undoubtedly due to a combination of commercial pressure from the market leading producer Thonet and the political upheaval of the time, the firms merged in 1914 and in 1922 was absorbed into Thonet.

Production seems to have existed in multiple locations, but typically Austria and Czechoslovakia and occasionally co-signed with Jacob and Josef Kohn.
