A TONERA is an arty interior products brand, created and produced by artists in the UK and based in London. We are specializing in arty interior, lifestyle, and decorative objects for the home and creative business properties.
The main forms and shapes of TONERA’s arty products are minimalist or abstract. We prefer using a simply limited range of forms and colors. Nothing extra, just the most important one, pure essence. Realism is not needed.
It can be just 2-3 colors and very simplified modes, but anyway, the image, character, or mood will be recognizable. We use achromatic power, just black and just white for the main sense. Adding beige or grey or their mix plus a little metallic accent creates modern great interior looks.
On the basis of most of our products are simplest geometrical forms such as spheres, squares, lines or rectangles, fuzzy and vague spots and areas or their combinations.
The materials used are solid, durable, wear-resistant: steel, acrylic, stone, wood, fabrics, golden leaf imitation covered by sturdy varnish. The size is available primarily in small and middle formats, but bigger formats are available to be produced on commission.
Usually, a simple form builds a complex one. In our approach, we go from the opposite, representing complex things in simple forms. So, our bear consists of only 9 simple steel balls, but this minimalism does not stop making him a bear. The same as a few black spots on the white surface is pretty enough to make the cow pattern recognizable.
If you are also a lover of ‘black and white’ or prefer minimalism in decorating, you are in the right place. Welcome to TONERA.
