27/03/2019 - At this year’s Milan trade fair, TON will introduce four new products – each crafted by a designer who has been collaborating with TON for a long time. The highlight is the stylish Ginger, an armchair designed by the Spanish design duo Yonoh. The playful and highly practical YYY coffee tables are the result of yet another collaboration between Alex Gufler and TON. The Leaf collection has been expanded to include a dining chair, and the classic shape of chair 811 has been transformed into the barstool 813. YYY coffee table by TON

Last year studio Yonoh brought us the Valencia collection; this year it follows with Ginger. 'We wanted to create an organic piece of furniture featuring gentle curves. The bulbous shape of the healing ginger root was our inspiration and gave the armchair its name', opens Clara del Portillo from studio Yonoh. The idea gave birth to an upholstered armchair with a fresh appeal that is solidly built without appearing heavy. A slight bend on the upper part of the legs pays homage to TON’s signature wood-bending technique. The backrest and armrests are made from a single piece of pressed plywood and are upholstered in quality materials, creating a neat and compact unit. As a result, Ginger is comfortable yet lightweight. 'In Milan you will see Ginger adorned in rich velvet, which has been recently added to our upholstery portfolio', adds Jan Juza, TON’s Marketing Director. Ginger armchair by TON

Three heights and three diameters encourage creative play with Alex Gufler’s new YYY coffee tables. The whimsical leg design forms the letter Y when viewed from below and gives the collection its name. 'I wanted to create a simple product with small details that are focussed on design and utility', explains Alex Gufler, the designer behind TON’s successful Merano collection. 'By shaving off one side of the tabletop I gave the collection its distinctive and functional shape, as the tables can be placed along a wall or next to another piece of furniture', explains the designer the reason for the unusual form. The tabletop comes in solid beech or oak. No matter how hard you try, one table will never be enough. YYY coffee table by TON

Another product to be unveiled at the Milan trade fair is barstool no. 813, a cousin to Josef Hoffmann’s renowned chair design known by the code 811. Just like the original chair, the barstool can be finished with airy cane weave, plush upholstery or a combination of the two. Barstool n. 813 by TON

The fourth new product is the Leaf armchair with visually understated, pressed-plywood armrests, designed by the Italian studio E-ggs. The armchair joins the other members of the Leaf family, which can now grace your interior as a unified whole. The seat on the Leaf armchair can be upholstered to provide hours of sitting comfort.
