In 1958 Adriaan Dekker designed the Tomado bookshelf / bookcase in wire and metal that, while having a low price, is innovative, practical and with an original design. The product quickly enters all homes; from the children's bedroom to the office, from the kitchen to the living room, where the dark oak furniture slowly gives way to a new minimalist contemporary style. The dutch houses in the post-war years wanted light and modern things, and these Tomado-shaped shelves perfectly matched this need. The bookcase was sold in various combinations of black, yellow, red and blue. In the beginning of the 80s the Metaltex group acquired the Tomado brand and over the years further developed its reputation by extending its range and penetration. Today Tomado products are found throughout Europe.
