Considering the history of furniture and materials for upholstered seating furniture we developed a light upholstered seating element "Tomi". We were trying to ascertain, if it is possible to replace the classic framework with alighter and less demanding element for construction. We were interested in firmness and durability of such furniture, so we tested it according to SIST ENV 12520:2001, SIST EN 1022:2006 and SIST EN 1728:2002 standards. On the basis of these tests we found out that our product "Tomi" is in accordance with these standards. We believe that our model of upholstered furniture is suitable for assembly, transportation and bodes exceptionally well in regards of simple handling of the product.
