What is Tonus?
A harmonious combination of natural wood and transparent resin.
With technology developed by the designer and artist Nimrod Eilam over the last seven years, the transparent resin is cast between the wooden sections and forms a material that is even, stable, and strong.
The combination of warm, classic wood, and light, modern, transparent resin, generates a new material that allows for an endless array of creation: furniture, lighting fixtures, illuminated walls, partitions, doors, and much, much more.
About the Technique
At the Eilam Studio [link] we have constructed casting rooms and material laboratories in which we create the harmonious combination of wood and resin.
The principle is to position pieces of wood in various molds, and then to cast the resin into the molds. The materials undergo a certain process that causes the wood and resin to merge together into one material. After the casting, the Tonus undergoes various phases of processing until the final product is achieved.
* The material was tested in a laboratory authorized for strength of materials testing, and was found to be durable and fit for all its applications.
