process and glass design

Glass can form single pieces par excellence and fits perfectly in any room or surrounding context. Furniture, containers, ornaments and even architectural or design features; the thousand different facets of glass are ideal for furnishing with discretion and refined elegance. It is for this very reason that Tonelli has chosen the class and creativity of master designers.

Thickness starting from a minimum of 12-15 mm for supporting structures and from a minimum of 8-10 mm for tops and doors means that glass is totally resistant and sturdy and therefore, totally safe.
But that is not all; glass is also non-toxic and environmentally friendly.

Glass: an element that is far more similar to a liquid than to a solid.
Strange as it may seem, its physical structure is far more like the molecular structure of a liquid than the crystalline structure of a solid. Only a characteristic high degree of viscosity prevents glass particles from sliding one onto another, as happens in liquids.
As temperature increases and contrary to the process that occurs in metals, which at set temperatures run or freeze, glass in fact passes through various stages of malleability, slowly becoming softer until it is finally soft and ductile.

The great and innate versatility of glass also favours its interaction with other materials, providing excellent results in all types of furnishing use.
