Recently Augustus Jones hosted an intimate gathering in celebration of our much beloved furniture manufacturer TON. Flying through Toronto on his way back to the Chez Republic, Matej from TON stopped in to talk about the famed bended furniture maker.
We were taken on a little history tour through the years, stopping at such milestones as the production of the Chair No. 18 in 1876, and the introduction of the now award winning Chips in 2018.
Industry friends and designers alike were treated to a short behind the scenes video of what goes on in the production process for products like the Chair No. 15, and the very popular Chair Merano. From steaming in the kiln, to bending, staining, and upholstering, the evolution of a product has remained exacting for over a century.
