Soundabsorbing felt shell made of PET bottles

The sound absorbing armchair TONO was one of the first chairs on the market which is made of environmental friendly materials. Its shell is made of felt from recycled PET bottles.

Timeless and beautiful shape.

With its characteristic seat shell and comfortable armrests, the Danish Design Company Hans Thyge & Co, has managed to design a functional chair with a both timeless and beautiful shape. The seat shell is flexible and designed for high comfort. This has been achieved by further developing the unique double curved back of the well-known SALA chair, also made by Hans Thyge & Co.

3 different frame types

The transformation from design to actual chair has taken more than a year and the shell has gone through many alterations and improvements in order to transform it into the molded felt shape it has today. During this period of time, 3 different types of frames have been developed which gives the chair three completely different looks and makes it a very versatile chair suited for many different purposes and environments. 


By recycling 250 half-litre plastic bottles, we have created a material that challenges the ‘use and throw away’ tendencies with a circular life cycle that is both better for the environment and is more economical.
