Ton Valencia Chair

Add to

Industrial designers Alex Selma and Clara del Portillo met at an exhibition for young designers in 2004. Two years later, they founded their studio and launched their first collection as Yonoh, an ambigram – a word that retains meaning even when its letters are flipped over or reversed – they invented to express the bicephalic (two-headed) character of their own approach. For the furniture company Ton, they created the Valencia Collection (2018), named for the Spanish city where Yonoh is based. With its ergonomic form, solid wood construction, steam-bent legs and generous backrest, Valencia has all the makings of a classic that will last for generations but never bore. Chair stacks up to six high. Made in the Czech Republic.
