After last year’s debut, the 822 Collection of chairs, by Claesson Koivisto Rune, returns to centre stage. Now a new version is available with the striking dot perforations, the distinctive twist on Josef Hoffmann’s A811 designed in 1930. Together with TON, the Swedish studio have created an upholstered version for this year’s Salone del Mobile. The time has also come to expand the P.O.V. Collection, by German studio kaschkasch: it now has three versions of the coffee table.

The 811 lounge chair with a cane weave or upholstery has also been added to our portfolio. All the new items will be available to view for the first time at Salone del Mobile, from 18 to 23 April 2023. TON will this year be located at Stand D20 in Hall 10, as part of S.Project.

The models can be colour-finished with stains or pigments

The idea for the 822 Collection, first exhibited in 2022, was originally conceived on the basis of Claesson Koivisto Rune’s wish to create a limited-edition series for the interior of a new family restaurant in the former Norwegian stock exchange building. They approached TON with their idea, a variation on the classic model, which TON liked so much that the decision was made to transform it into an expanded, mass-produced collection.

The 822 product family, which consists of a chair, armchair, low and high barstools, stools and a lounge chair both with and without armrests, combines the use of shaped plywood and hand-bent solid beech wood. To ensure the utmost comfort when seated, the upholstered version utilises an ingenious structure with straps attached to the seat. The models can be colour-finished with stains or pigments, or the natural character can be retained with lacquer or oil.

The shape of their 822 lounge chair has even expanded the 811 product family. The 811 lounge chair takes inspiration from the 822’s lines and is likewise available with or without armrests. Instead of perforations, however, it has an upholstered seat and backrest, or a cane weave, or a combination of the two.

All the new models will be exhibited at the Salone del Mobile in Milan 2023

The P.O.V. coffee tables, by German studio Kaschkasch, are a new addition to the modular table of the same name, which was launched in 2021. The name refers to the organic table leg, which has a rounded triangular form, giving it a unique appearance from every point of view. The three new options are no different, but they are suitable for private interiors and lounge zones. Overall, the collection comprises dozens of different options, and can also be accessorised by a stackable stool with the same name.

The low tables come in three heights, which can be combined with each other – 55 cm, 45 cm and 42 cm. The tallest, number 473, has a fixed top diameter of 52 cm, but a choice of diameter is available for the smaller options. The lowest P.O.V. coffee table, the 474, is available in diameters of 80, 90 and 100 cm. A choice of 110, 120 and 130 cm is available for the middle one (the 475). The tables, which can be accessorised with electric sockets and IPAN IPAN wireless charging, are made from three types of wood – oak, beech and American walnut. Lacquer and oil are the only finishes available, except for the multiplex tabletop, which can also be coloured with a stain or pigment.

All the new models will be exhibited at the Salone del Mobile in Milan, which will take place between 18 and 23 April 2023. The TON stand, D20, will on this occasion be located in Hall 10, which is dedicated to the new S.Project concept. This is a new space within the exhibition devoted to the essence of design products and decorative or technical solutions in interior design. TON products will also be on display in the centre of Milan, at Via Tortona 31, as well as at the fair. TON has joined the Terra project by Archiproducts, curated by Studio Pepe. The concept is inspired by our natural connection to the earth. The showroom will be open from 18 to 23 April 2023, 10:00–20:00.
