Wooden chair, made in the 1960s by the renowned furniture manufacturer TON. Founded in 1861 in the town of Bystřice pod Hostýnem, TON was one of the first companies to produce bentwood furniture. It involves a long production process in which the wood is kept in specific moisture conditions. After drying, the pieces of wood are steamed in special vats for several hours before being inserted into moulds to give them a specific shape. This chair, made from beech wood, has four long, straight legs which reach all the way up to the steam-bent arm/backrest. The chair has not been refurbished. The wooden frame has minor scuffs, and the upholstery of the seat shows signs of wear and tear.
