Industrialisation, steam power, electricity, evolutionary theory – the nineteenth century produced many remarkable innovations unsurpassed to this day.

One of these was the technique of bending wood, a technique on which Michael Thonet and his sons built a network of factories where they transformed bent wood into iconic furniture designs.

Production began in 1861 in Bystřice pod Hostýnem in the Czech republic.
The logistically advantageous position with plentiful beech trees in the surrounding forests, combined with a skilled local workforce, shaped the spirit of a factory that has managed to preserve its exacting craft for more than 150 years. In spite of several changes in ownership, the factory has been producing under the independent label Ton since 1953.

Work at Ton beats to the same rhythm as it did 160 years ago. The rhythm of skilled wood benders placing hundreds of pieces of wood into bending forms each day. Their strength, speed and affinity with wood continue to fascinate no matter how many times one observes their craft.

Manual work also dominates the rest of the production process, complemented by the innovative work of Ton’s designers, technological advancements and their responsible management of natural resources.

This is Ton – quality that will last for generations.

About the designer

Jaroslav Juřica

Jaroslav Juřica was born in 1980.

During his Bachelor product design studies at the Faculty of Fine Arts of Brno University of Technology, he became interested in products as objects and searched for their functional principles. He completed his Masters studies at the School of Design by the Swedish Lund University.

In 2008, he worked in the Dutch Demakersvan studio and in the autumn of the same year he attended the S.T.A.R. Design programme (Space and Terrestrial Architectural Research) organised in collaboration with the NASA Johnson Space Centre in Houston. There he designed the MotylBox concept – a tool storage system for geological Moon surveys.

In 2010, he graduated at sculpting with professor Michal Gabriel at the Faculty of Fine Arts where he created, among other things, the +20% Extra object. The work made it to the finals of the Global Warming competition organised by the Dutch Droog Design foundation.

For TON, he created the 002 Chair.
