Designer: Giulio Mancini
Born in Pesaro, Italy (1969). Giulia Mancini earned a degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Bologna and quickly turned his attention to industrial design. From 1999 to 2001, he worked with design firm Acanto, creating trade fair and showroom stands and fittings for such companies as Alluflon-Moneta, Benelli, and SCM Group. He has established an important relationship with GTTrading, one of Europe's leading companies in the industry of hi-fis for cars and the high-end domestic market, for brands such as Steg, Aloia, and Boston Acoustics. In 2002 he began to work with graphic designer Nicola Sancisi, with whom he established the studio Nettodesign in Pesaro.
Founded in the 1980s as a humble artisan based company, Tonelli was born from the deep and lasting passion for research and experimentation of an old, beautiful, and difficult material; glass. Through persistent glass manipulation and trial and error with structural bonding agents and techniques, Tonelli eventually found a welding agent that not only left the bonded sections transparent, but left these same jointed areas stronger; this technique put Tonelli's products on the industry map and turned their products in to symbols of innovation. Within the sequential years, the company continued to experiment with their favorite material, such as using shatterproof glass, and further steadied their foothold as a noteworthy design company.
Tonelli features pieces that sometimes seems to function more as wondrous art piece rather than a furnishing. Today, Tonelli pushes the boundaries of technology to create products that enhance the beauty of glass while maintaining functionality. Wood, mirrored, and chromed accents complement many of Tonelli's pieces, making the range well suited for many modern aesthetics.View other products from Tonelli
