Tonelli Naked Chair Finished in Leather and Glass

Glass has always held a special place in furnishings and this time we are witnessing the use of glass in a chair unlike usual times where we talk about glass tables. The Tonelli chair is actually a combination of leather and glass and it is a new concept in glass design, which is a consequence of a deep and lasting passion for research and experimentation for Tonelli.

This is a striking contemporary design where an armchair gets a black or white adjustable seat balanced between toughened glass sides. The opening in the sides forms comfortable armrests. The Tonelli glass arm chair costs £2,650 and gets shipped within 8 weeks.

I honestly don’t like anything about this chair. The idea of creating a chair from a combination of glass and other materials is not bad but the result is not positive at all. Even without the glass features, this chair would still be extremely ugly.  Plus, it’s not comfortable, it’s not functional and it takes quite a lot of space. So I’m sorry if this is offending, but the long time of experimentation was for nothing. With a few adjustments it could look better, and as for the comfort issue, I like the adjustable seat idea. But the design and the shape have to be changed. Maybe some people disagree with me, and that’s ok, it’s just an opinion.
