About the project
The topic of the collaboration with the manufacturer TON a.s. was to design a kitchen chair with its virtual variants of a bar stool, an armchair, a chair with armrests and an upholstered version. Students worked on their own research and gained interesting informations through consultations and excursions in the TON production halls. The project developed from drawings and models in a scale of 1:5 to functional prototypes created by students in school conditions.
A separate assignment was the topic RECYCLING - the goal of the topic was to create a product from technically inevitable losses that occur daily during production, such as scraps and offcuts - i.e. scraps. The premise of the project was to create a product that would fit into the TON product portfolio.
The results of the cooperation can be seen in Villa Thonet in Bystřice pod Hostýnem, at the headquarters of the TON company.
