Contemporary furniture makers TON, unveiled their new lounge chair designed by Lucie Koldova at IMM Cologne 2018.
This year TON participated in the Pure Editions segment, IMM’s dynamic format for curators of visionary furniture, revealing their new design in the prestigious Das Haus.
Each year Daus Haus is created anew under the direction of a different designer, who uses architecture, interior design and furniture design to create a unique vision of the future. Inspired by light, this year chosen designer Lucie Koldova and creator of TON’s latest design stated, “I tried to imagine light on multiple levels and complement it with iconic objects that help complete the story, Chips will feature in the creative ‘Inspiration’ zone, where it will define a relaxation area.”

“The commanding, airy backrest, which also forms part of the chair base, resembles the typical shape of a potato chip” —TON
Known for their bent beech wood TON’s classic technique meets Koldova’s vision of future living. The designer, who likes to works with translucent materials, chose a visually light yet intentionally oversized backrest, which is made from perforated fabric framed by manually bent wood and a contrasting solid seat.
“I wanted a chair that would be defined by its gentle curves, a chair that would be comfortable and inviting at first glance. A solitary piece with a distinctive character and story. And in contrast to a conventional chair, I wanted a chair that would feel sexy,” — Koldova
