Bernard Holdaway for Hull Traders Ltd c1966.
A rare pair of tomotom demi-lune shelves / side tables in
black enamelled compressed cardboard.
Designed in 1966, tomotom was a range of low-price furniture with
a Pop aesthetic, based entirely on a circular theme – cylinders,
discs and spheres. Conceived as a collection that could be added
to over time, the ‘circle’ allowed for greater flexibility in
grouping and arrangement. The furniture was designed to be
disposable and as such many pieces didn't survive, with the range
discontinued in 1971.
