Relax, it's just a lamp
NEVER BLEND IN
How can we apply our fascination for traditional mechanics and craft tools into state-of-the art design? This quest was the starting point for the products of lighting label Tonone, known for the use of characteristic construction tools as a visual and a functional basis for innovative product design.
This vision was well illustrated by the design of the Tonone-line up: the Bolt-series, rapidly followed by the sturdy lamp Mr. Tubes, the hand blown glass series Atlas and Ella and the smart serie Orbit. In 2019 Tonone introduces two LED series; Beads, a series of lamps with 360 degrees dimmable LED range and the New Mr. Tubes LED.
Today the design team’s vision is still committed to apply traditional craft tools and mechanics in innovative light design. Although the handwriting of Anton de Groof and his team is still to be described as bold and functional, the newly introduced light designs have evaluated to a slick, unadomed and smart lightconcept. Even when there is no visibility of the used mechanics, Tonone’s signature is still recognized in every next step of its lighting design.
Tonone was founded in 2013 by designer Anton de Groof and is based in The Netherlands. The Tonone design team works together with local craftsmen to produce their products. During the design- and the production process the entire life cycle of the products is taken into account when it comes to sustainability, efficiency and logistics.
