Tonelli – Technical Innovation
Back in the 1980s when Tonelli was first established, glass was primarily used in flat sheets and joined together using visible metal joints.
Tonelli began experimenting with welding together sheets of glass using structural bonding agents.
They discovered that glass could be bonded together. In fact the bond that they created had maintained the transparency of the glass and the glass had a higher level of resistance in this area than in other areas of the glass.
The clean lines and joints that this innovation has helped create is responsible for realising many of the products in their range today.
Once again this a case of the creativity of design inspiring technological research and advancement.
