Made by Tomado

Tomado was established in 1923 by Dutch brothers Jan and Wim Van der Togt in the small town of Dordrecht. The company initially specialised in producing copper hooks and other simple home wares. By the mid 20th century Tomado had grown to become one of Holland's leading producers of innovative products for the modern home.

Even the most simple object is not beneath our dignity, as long as it is perfect in its execution.
— Wim Van Der Togt

Designed by Adriaan Dekker

Adriaan Dekker is best know for his role as head of design at the Dutch company Tomado. The company rose to prominence after WW2 to meet the great demand for affordable household furniture. Dekker's keen eye for detail and ability to design simple utilitarian designs with an inherit elegance has given his work a timeless appeal. 

Adriaan Dekker also created a series of wire armchairs in collaboration with the Dutch furniture maker Pastoe. These chairs, along with his Tomado Shelving System have since become highly collectible icons of post war Dutch design.
