Description

Dutch kitchenware company Tomado was founded as a small manufacturer of copper hooks in 1923 in Dordrecht, Holland by the Van der Togt brothers. By the mid 20th century the company was producing a number of simple, functionalist kitchenware and storage systems.

The Tomado string wall unit was designed by Adriaan Dekker in the late 1950s and has since become an enduring icon of form and function. It features unique metal side ladders that support adjustable lacquered metal shelves. This early version, painted in vibrant primary colors associated with the Dutch De Stijl movement is one of the most coveted.
