The new armchair TONO launched by Randers+Radius is one of the first chairs on the market which is made of environmental friendly materials and at the same time is a sound-absorbing chair with a shell made of felt from 100% recycled PET bottles.
After many tests and alterations a method had been defined which made it possible to weld a piece of fabric on the inner part of the shell. This gives the chair a formal interplay between the light and elegant frame and the soft upholstery.
The seat shell is flexible and designed for high comfort. With its characteristic seat shell and comfortable armrests, the Danish Design Company Hans Thyge & Co, has managed to design a functional chair with a both timeless and beautiful shape.
The transformation from design to actual chair has taken more than a year and the shell has gone through many alterations and improvements in order to transform it into the molded felt shape it has today. During this period of time 3 different types of frames have been developed which gives the chair three completely different looks and makes it a very versatile chair suited for many different purposes and environments.
