Bent wood where you would not expect it. The chair and barstool are proof that a traditional wood-bending technique knows few limits, even in forms usually reserved for metal furniture. Inspired by the shape of a tennis racket, a generous arch crafted of solid beech wood embraces a plywood seat and backrest. The collection boasts precision craftsmanship, solid construction, comfort and a variety of upholstery options – all in a stackable design. You are sure to return to this collection again and again
Showing no visible joins, the chair 05 combines TON’s signature bent backrest with an elegantly formed, light plywood seat. The chair can be stacked for easy storage and efficient use of space.
