The TON company dates back to the mid-1800s when Michael Thonet patented a steam bending process for beechwood and the café bentwood chair was born. This was the first piece of furniture to be mass manufactured and exported around the world. In India the Irani cafés were famous for having adopted them not long after they were introduced. Many cafés still have the original pieces in use. Ton has survived 150+ years; through private and public ownership; through imperialism, fascism, communism, and capitalism, and still produces the chairs in the same factory they were originally produced in in the Czech Republic.
