TON introduces the P.O.V. collection, a furniture range defined by its unique shape seen from every angle
TON has started to collaborate with the German design duo kaschkasch, with which it shares a passion for minimalist and timeless design. The new P.O.V. collection which stems from these principles, contains nearly 70 pedestal table combinations and a stackable dining stool by the same name. Suitable for just about any interior, the modular system is defined by its organically shaped base with a rounded triangular footprint, which presents a unique view from each angle.
Development of the collection took nearly two years and began with a visit to the TON factory which appealed to the two wood aficionados with its high degree of handwork and focus on precision craftsmanship. ‘Both designers come from cabinetmaking families, so they understand the material and the various technical processes. I was very pleased with our collaboration, which ended up enriching both sides,’ says TON’s Art Director Alexander Gufler, who oversaw the development process.
‘Our main goal was to design tables that would fit with the company’s current portfolio but also bring something new. The conical shape of the table base contrasts the fine lines of bentwood furniture,’ added kaschkasch designer Sebastian Schneider.
TON is using three different types of wood for the collection; beech, oak and American walnut, which is known for its pronounced wood figure. The collection includes a stackable dining stool in a smooth or upholstered finish that adds a functional as well as a playful element.
The collection will be available from 1 May 2021 through the company’s website, TON showrooms and authorised sellers. Should Salone del Mobile take place in Milan this year, the collection will be available for viewing at the TON stall.
