Bentwood bar stool titled no. 18, by TON.
About TON: The inventor and entrepreneur Michael Thonet was lured to Bystřice pod Hostýnem by the town’s surrounding beech forests, hardworking local folk, and logistically advantageous position. Together with his sons he built his factory in 1861, the oldest surviving factory of its kind in the world. The current name TON originates from 1953 and is an acronym for the Czech Továrny na ohýbaný nábytek, ‘bentwood furniture factories’ in English.
Each product is the work of at least 20 pairs of hands of a team of craftsmen and craftswomen who for six generations have been endowing steamed wood with new shapes and forms. Once bentwood dries, skilled hands set to work on sanding, staining, assembling, oiling, upholstering and packing.
