Introducing Tomado – Dutch Modular Shelving System
The launch of modular shelving by Dutch maker Tomado marks the start of a series of new brands to be offered by Mr Bigglesworthy in New Zealand during 2017.
It's the heritage of the company that has attracted us to the brand. Founded in Dordrecht, Holland, in 1923 by the Van der Togt brothers, Tomado started as a producer of copper hooks and kitchenware. After almost a century it's the utilitarian shelving, designed by Adriaan Dekker in the late 1950s, that remains a coveted collector favourite.
The Tomado wall shelving system has since become an enduring icon of form and function. It features unique metal side ladders that support adjustable lacquered metal shelves. The shelving is available in black and white, or as a combination of both.
Tomado offers a contemporary tidy and display piece for any room in the house or in a commercial environment. In conjunction with stylist Kendyl Middelbeek and photographer Stephen Tilley, Mr. Bigglesworthy demonstrates some of the possibilities with this thoughtful design.
This product is exclusive in New Zealand and Australia to Mr. Bigglesworthy.
