The belief of Essey, that function should be representative of natural form, is at the very core of the company and is at the heart of its design philosophy - Symbolic Functionalism. We design functional and beautiful products for everyday life, products that have soul and identity.
From 1969 to the present day, and over three generations, creative, imaginative spirit mixed with self belief produced the high quality tradition of Italian craftsmanship that has marked Crassevig’s name, with tables and chairs appreciated throughout the world and distinguished by their tight, functional form.
Tonone is founded in 2013 by Anton de Groof and is based in The Netherlands. The Tonone design team works together with local craftsman to produce their products. Each step in the process of designing and producing is done with care and an eye for each detail. Tonone stands for bold, functional and no-nonsense products with an industrial character. The design team’s vision is that traditional craft tools and mechanics can be a visual, as well as a functional basis for innovative product design.
