About TÔNN

At TÔNN furniture we design and produce furniture that makes you thrive at home. Our design philosophy is all about multifunctionality. All homes need different functions and as life changes the furniture can transform as well. The hero in the TÔNN furniture family is the PORTAL shelving system. Since it was launched in 2015, the shelving system is always evolving to fit different rooms and homes.

Why is it called TÔNN furniture?

Ten years can pass in a whirlwind. Back in 2011, our founder Josefine Halfwordson started casting concrete tables in a basement in Stockholm. A few tables to friends became many, and the company Betonggruvan (“concrete mine” in Swedish) was founded. A lot has happened since. Tables are now history, with shelves taking their place.

We love to think about how and why we thrive at home, and change is a keyword for us. That’s why it feels exciting to announce that we start celebrating our 10th anniversary with changing our name. Bye Betonggruvan, hello TÔNN furniture! Our community of shelf lovers has grown far beyond the Swedish borders and we look forward to seeing what the future holds.

Why TÔNN you might wonder. TÔNN is a made up word, but for us it means a new chapter, an open mindset and of course – room for change.

You can buy our furniture here in our webshop with world wide delivery. We’re keeping our showroom closed during July, and will open up again in August at a new location near Mariatorget, Stockholm. Welcome back then!

The birth of the shelf

The Portal shelving system was born in our first store on Sveavägen in Stockholm. I designed a shelf to exhibit the shop’s smaller products. It was easy to mount, very airy and easy to change and rebuild. After a little while customers started asking about the shelf. Many asked, and many many more and suddenly I had a lot of enquiries. A long product development started and when I had found the right producer the shelf became a new beloved heroine at TÔNN furniture. Since then we’ve developed it more and more, added new color ways, heights and accessories. All as a combination of your thoughts and wants and TÔNN’s design.
