+− 160 let: Vznik a expanze ohýbaného nábytku z Bystřice pod Hostýnem

1st place

A monograph of the company Ton published to mark the “160th anniversary of furniture bending in Bystřice pod Hostýnem” in its design expresses the basic work material of the factory of Michael Thonet: the noble hardwoods which Ton used to make its authentic furniture with the same care. The different colour shades of paper, the trimmed edge suggestive of a section of the tree rings and hardcover make the book more than just normal reader comfort. This is an interesting example of the work of Studio Marvil.
