Strength is found in silence. The La Zitta "quiet in Italian" embodies timelessness, strength and versatility in one. The traditional, understated form reinterprets contemporary proportions and detailed craftsmanship. It was designed to be the ideal reflection of TON’s manufacturing processes and technology, tried and tested by generations, both in its use of materials and how they are processed. The chair is constructed entirely from solid beechwood, and we use woodbending technology to make it. It also incorporates ergonomic details that at first glance make the understated form more comfortable to sit on.
"this new chair is called la zitta,
means basically the silent one.
and that in my opinion reflects
perfectly the design of this chair."
screaming never lasts,
but silence is enduring.
"this is a chair of heart coherence.
you feel good without knowing why.
it is a matter of feeling."
