Simple yet unique. Such an impressive combo right? Well that is exactly what Tonfisk set out to do. Since their inception in Helsinki in 1999, they have followed the philosophy that ‘ form follows function doesn’t mean all objects have to look the same.' Based on what I have seen, all is very much on track. Nothing boring just pure innovation.
Consistant with this is their company name and how it came about. They were looking for a something that conveyed their values 'innovation, personal, Finnish' but chose Tonfisk which is Swedish for tuna fish. Why? Because they liked it, and by chance their office was in Lemuntie (Stinky) Road in Helsinki until 2007. Now that's funny!
