MAK on TOUR to Bystřice (CZ)
MAK on TOUR takes us to the TON production plant in Bystřice, where the famous bentwood furniture has been produced since 1861. Since then, the unique technique of manual wood bending has been constantly developed and combined with ideas from contemporary designers. We get the opportunity to experience the work as well as witness the process of the bentwood technique live on site.
