Tomado was a dutch company established in 1923 in Dordrecht. After the war they became very succesful producing small household equipement. Their major success where these metal wall units. The colourfull shelves were inspired by Rietveld and Mondriaan.

These are some of my Tomado wall units. I love the colours of the shelves. They come in red, yellow, grey and blue.

Very soon the new album of 2raumwohnung is released. I can hardly wait...
