Responsibility

Responsibility

Our long history affirms the importance of honouring lasting visions. We want future generations to live in an environment that is at least as rich and diverse as the environment we know today. That is why we use wood from certified and – as much as possible – local sources, which contributes to sustainable forest management and decreases our carbon footprint.

Natural materials

Natural materials

We believe in natural materials. Their variety and perfection will never cease to fascinate; our desire to understand them will never be fully satisfied. For generations we have been perfecting our work with wood, cane and leather. Explore with us how these natural materials contribute to the truly unique character of each of our products.

Quality

Quality

At TON we consider quality to be a key aspect of sustainability, because a product that provides comfort over a number of decades ultimately saves on materials and resources. We focus on quality control throughout the entire production process, and we perform a number of tests to ensure that our products meet durability standards set by the European Union.
