The Quiller collection designed by Uto Balmoral consists of five elements: a bookcase, a console, a mirror, a low-table and a side-table. All furnishings are made of high thickness glass slabs processed with the chamfering technique, which rounds off the corners through a tilted cut. A further detail -typical of Tonelli design tradition- is represented by the hand-bonding of glass, strongly emphasized in this collection to remember the history and the craftsmanship of the company.
The Quiller collection stand out for its lightness and versatility: the products are designed for both residential and work environments and could be personalized for the customer needs. For example, both the console and the side-table may be complemented with a tray in solid walnut canaletto wood or mat white MDF, the bookcase can be used against a wall or also freestanding and the low-table is available in square or rectangular shape.
Tonelli design has been designing and manufacturing glass furniture for 25 years and its manual bonding technique has become its distinctive feature. Tonelli has continued to experiment whilst remaining faithful to its origins, resulting in a perfect balance between shape and technique. The in-house glass factory and state of the art machinery have allowed the company to achieve an optimal production capacity, both in terms of turnaround time and of the quality of tailor-made products.

When the 2013 Milan Furniture Fair was held earlier this year, there were quite a few forecasts for the design trends we would be seeing in the fall. Some of them are being incorporated in modern furnishings and others never really caught the imagination of American interior designers. Here is a recap of the best trends you are likely to see in our showrooms for the remainder of this year.

“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” ― Coco Chanel
Every year the hottest trends in both fashion and interior design are introduced first to commercial buyers and then to the consumers who will personally use them. Historically, fashion trends have always come first and then influenced furniture designs, but now many of the lines between the two are blurring due to tighter timelines. The romance between fashion and furniture continues today, but sometimes in new and unexpected ways.
