The 822 and 811 collections have been expanded by Claesson Koivisto Rune and the P.O.V. product family by the German duo KASCHKASCH. These new items were TON’s main theme for this year’s Salone del Mobile in Milan, which takes place from 18 to 23 April 2023. On this occasion, the brand is exhibiting as part of the S.Project concept in hall 10, stand D20 and, in addition to the above-mentioned new products, it has also brought products launched in previous years and some hand-bent models.

A new version of the 822 Collection – the distinctive version of the A811, designed by Josef Hoffmann in 1930, with its striking dot perforations – is available from this spring. The Swedish studio Claesson Koivisto Rune worked with TON to prepare an upholstered version. “The 822 and its distinctive pattern have become iconic. By developing a version with an upholstered seat, we can not only provide a softer version suitable for situations requiring greater comfort, we can also add character by creating a family,” stated Claesson Koivisto Rune. “The perforations were never the sole highlight of the 822. Since its inception, we have attempted to create a contemporary chair that encapsulated the essence of the classic A811. The upholstered 822 is a logical addition,” adds the trio of Swedish designers.

The lines of the popular 811 series are now complemented by a lounge chair

A chair, armchair, bar stool in two heights, stool and lounge chairs both with and without armrests all use straps attached to the seat frame for a comfortable sitting experience. The models also combine the use of shaped plywood in the backrest and hand-bent solid beech wood, which can be finished with stains or pigment colours; alternatively, the natural character can be allowed to shine by simply using lacquer or oil. Just like other TON models, the 822 Collection is made from wood certified under the PECF system, which focuses on the sustainable use of forests and a responsible approach to the forest ecosystem. The plywood is made from wood that comes from within a 30-km radius of the TON factory in Bystřice pod Hostýnem.

The lines of the popular 811 series are now complemented by a lounge chair, again by Claesson Koivisto Rune and again with or without armrests. The seat and backrest come with upholstery, or a cane weave, or a combination of the two. This lounge chair will find a use in both private interiors and commercial premises, where it enhances the full character of the product family, which also consists of chairs, dining chairs and bar stools.

The coffee tables by German studio KASCHKASCH are a new version of the P.O.V. modular table system 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. “This collection’s character comes from the materials used and the appearance of the leg, which is composed of three bent plywood sheets in the same shape, and forms the basis for an entire family of tables,” explained designer Florian Kallus. The three new options are no different, but they are suitable for private interiors and lounge zones. “We took the shape of the base and created a coffee table from it. I think it’s entirely logical to add it to the collection, and at the same time, it’s an essential step,” Kallus added.

TON has joined the Archiproducts Terra project, curated by Studio Pepe

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 tabletop 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 can be accessorised with sockets and IPAN IPAN wireless charging. They are made from three types of wood – oak, beech and American walnut. Lacquer and oil are the only finishes available, apart from the multiplex tabletop, which can also be coloured with stains or pigments.

At this year’s Salone del Mobile, TON’s stand, D20, is situated in hall 10, joining the S.Project concept once again. This is a space within the exhibition devoted to the essence of design products and decorative or technical solutions in interior design. The launch was designed by the creators of one of this year’s new products, studio KASCHKASCH. “The wooden sides are inspired by TON’s DNA material and introduce a softer character to the presentation. They are also curved, which emphasises the technology of woodbending,” explained designer Florian Kallus. Sustainability is one of the main ideas underlying the creation of this collection, which is why it is composed of modules that can be de-assembled and re-used. The Austrian visual communications studio Bueronardin was responsible for the graphic work.

Select TON products, such as the P.O.V. tables, the Again bar stool and the Merano chair by Alexander Gufler, were on display in Milan’s city centre, at Via Tortona 31, as well as at the trade fair. TON has joined the Archiproducts Terra project, curated by Studio Pepe; the concept builds on earthy tones and our natural connection to the earth. This installation will be on display in Milan throughout the coming year.


In 1861, a bentwood furniture factory commenced operations in Bystřice pod Hostýnem, and now it is the oldest of its type in the world. Then the unusual system of industrial organisation of work and the possibilities offered by the unique technology helped bentwood furniture to expand around the globe. After a change in ownership structures, TON has continued to follow the principles of manual work, handed down from one generation to the next, and its functional connection with timeless design. It focuses on working with natural materials, products of structural and design quality, to completely fulfil the company’s motto: “handcrafted for generations”.
