The designer plays with rationality, sneaking into its realm and poking fun at it: NewTone-Tonet-Tonine, sounds like parole in libertà poetry, a playful irreverent futurist evocation. While the seats recall modern Streamline architecture with their emphasis on curves coupled with a determined horizontality of form. In part the result echoes classic design aesthetics while also appearing to be dictated by rules of hydrodynamics. It is a post-modern vision personified in a new tone, giving the act of sitting an aura of renewed respectability and style.
