Slow Movement and Tonfisk Design's Philosophy

“The central tenet of the slow philosophy is taking the time to do things properly, and thereby enjoy them more.” — Carl Honoré

The Slow Food Movement began in 1986, when Carlo Petrini protested the opening of a McDonald’s in Piazza di Spagna, Rome. Over time, the Slow Food Movement started developing other subcultures such as Slow Fashion, Slow Home, and Slow Travel.

"It is a cultural revolution against the notion that faster is always better. The Slow philosophy is not about doing everything at a snail's pace. It's about seeking to do everything at the right speed. Savoring the hours and minutes rather than just counting them. Doing everything as well as possible, instead of as fast as possible. It’s about quality over quantity in everything from work to food to parenting." — Carl Honoré

The philosophy of the Slow Movement embodies what is most important to us at Tonfisk Design. We are creating products the right way the first time. We check each piece for imperfections and correct them rather than sending out a mediocre product. We don’t do mediocre here. Quality of pieces over quantity is core to our business and we hope that our customers appreciate the time and work that goes into creating each piece.

We sincerely thank you for your support!
