09/05/2019 - Following their European premier in Milan, TON’s new spring models will be featured at ICFF in New York. This will be the second time that TON takes part in the New York trade fair. Products to travel to the US include the Ginger armchair, YYY coffee tables and a bar stool variation of the iconic 811 chair.

Created by the Spanish design studio Yonoh, Ginger is a lightweight armchair with a slender organic form. The ginger plant gave the chair both its name and its graceful lines. 'We were inspired by the bulbous curves of the medicinal root and wanted to reflect them in a piece of seating furniture', opens Clara del Portillo from studio Yonoh. The result is Ginger – an upholstered armchair with a fresh appeal that is solidly built without appearing heavy. Ginger by TON

A slight bend on the upper part of the legs pays homage to TON’s signature wood-bending technique. The backrest and armrests are made from a single piece of pressed plywood, creating a neat and compact unit. As a result, Ginger is very comfortable yet lightweight. 'In New York, Ginger will be presented in rich velvet – a material we have recently added to our upholstery portfolio', adds Jan Juza, TON’s Marketing Director.

Three heights and three diameters encourage creative play with Alex Gufler’s new YYY coffee tables. The tables are supported by three legs that form the letter Y when viewed from below, giving the collection its name. 'I wanted to create a simple product with small details focussed on design and utility', explains Alex Gufler, the designer behind TON’s successful Merano collection. YYY by TON

'By shaving off one side of the tabletop I gave the collection its distinctive and functional shape, which allows the tables to be neatly placed along a wall or next to another piece of furniture,' explains the designer the reason for the unusual form. The tabletops come in solid beech and oak. No matter how hard you try, one table will never be enough.

Another product to be unveiled at ICFF is barstool no. 813, a cousin to Josef Hoffmann’s iconic chair design known by the code 811. Just like the original chair, the barstool can be finished with airy cane weave, plush upholstery or a combination of the two.

Additional products on view will include the company’s classic chairs made from hand-bent wood and the award-winning Chips lounge chair. After the trade fair all new models will head to various TON showrooms.
