Tonon is one of the best known international brands in the world of chairs and tables, reliable and synonymous for design and quality “made in Italy”. Characterizing features that come from the past: their origins date back to the Twenties, many years of careful and creative craftsmanship. After that came the industrialization of the Fifties with a remarkable production increase. The pleasure of”thinking and making” however never failed. Tonon today bases itself on research and experience, on cultural and marketing factors, on new materials and new technologies. All with a craftsman heart and an industrial mind, a combination ensuring a better life while seated, whether relaxing, working, or at the table.
In 1924, Poul Henningsen created his influential Paris lamp for Louis Poulsen, and the origin of how we still design to shape light can directly be traced back to his views on the dualities of design and light.
Founded in 1874, Louis Poulsen is a Danish lighting manufacturer born out of the Scandinavian design tradition where form follows function. The function and design of our products are tailored to reflect and support the rhythm of natural light. Every detail in the design has a purpose. Every design starts and ends with light.
