TONA series, Bengt Orup (Johanfors, 1957)

setTONA9

This series was designed by Bengt orup in 1957 for Johansfors. The name TONA means “fade”, and that’s the best thing about this series: the fading colours.

The series consists of an uncertain number of dishes, bowls and vases.

The TONA range was made in two different shades of green. This one I show here is the one most widely seen, the other one is a shade of olive/moss grayish green, from ehich i have only seen two.
