TONDA is the display case for home-made gelato in which gelato makers across the whole world cherish and promote their art.TONDA perfectly preserves the gelato and displays it, creating a thrill. It offers ergonomics and comfort with optimum inclination and rotation of flavours towards the operator and protects the environment thanks to its choice of materials and energy savings. To give this project form and technology, the IFI R&D department has worked with a designer with refined experimental attributes:
Makio Hasuike. One of the founders of Italian graphics, Michele Provinciali (1921-2009), who captured its deepest soul with a sign that represents its essence, presented at the Milan Triennale design museum in May 2008. In 2008, TONDA received an ADI Golden Compass nomination and Innovations Europain award; in 2006 it was awarded the Confindustria Awards For Excellence and in 2002 was declared a highly innovative project by the Ministry of Economic Activities. Since 2009, TONDA has been part of the Farnesina Design Collection, established by Minister Frattini to promote artistic production in the design field in Italy. The collection, housed in Rome in the Palazzo della Farnesina, is intended to circuit several overseas locations to become the hub of events organized through a global network of embassies, consulates and cultural institutes:
Casa Italia - Winter Olympics, Vancouver
Casa Azzurri - World Cup, South Africa
Istanbul, European capital of design
Ara Pacis Museum - Rome
Museum of Holon and the Italian Embassy in Israel
Centre National d’Art Vivant Zoubeir Turki - Tunisia
Ecole Nationale d’Architecture - Rabat

TONDA is available in a single model - display case diameter 1356 mm (53,38”) with a 1500 mm or 1350 mm (59,05” or 53,14”) base, or a round base and in 12, 15 and 18 pan versions. The basic structure is made of tubular steel, epoxy powder painted at 356°F. The display surface moulded in AISI 304 polished stainless steel has been designed to hold 12/15/18 trapezoidal gelato pans. There are LED lights at the sides of the display case: these are highly efficient, produce minimal heat and consume little energy. The central flavours holder has been lowered so you can see the gelato and the flavour cards more clearly. The refrigeration system is ventilated and has a radial evaporator to guarantee completely uniform temperatures inside the pans.

The working temperature of the gelato display case is around 6.8°F to 0.4°F, though this can be lowered to -7.6°F for supercooling. TONDA has been tested in a climatic chamber at 95°F with 60% RH. A tropicalised version is also available: remote condenser unit tested at 109.4°F. Tonda is CE certified for Europe, ETL for
North America and GOST Standard for Russia.

Tonda gelato single portions and sticks



TONDA individual portions may also hold from a minimum of 29 to a maximum of 199 small glasses, in which case the central flavours holder can be replaced with a tray. This accessory item (stainless steel tray with methacrylate tray) is useful especially during the low season to reduce the quantity of gelato on display: the flavours most popular with customers can be displayed alongside the individual portions, which remain popular regardless of the season. The display case can also hold pans with accessories for sticks for maximum versatility and adaptability to different settings. The accessory is made of opaque perforated Plexiglass and is always used in the standard 5-litre trapezoidal pan. At the centre of the display case you can insert chrome or neutral flavour cards or an accessory for the individual portions.
