Tomado was a Dutch company for household products, particularly in a plastic-coated wire.

The company was founded in Dordrecht in 1923 by the Van der Togt brothers. Tomado stands for Van der Togt Massa Articles Dordrecht. Originally, it was a small company that produced simple wallpaper brackets made of copper wire, which could be used to mount photos on wallpaper. After the Dutch Association of Housewives gave the company the assignment to develop a metal drainer it started to grow and soon a factory in Zwijndrecht was opened.

After the Second World War, the reconstruction period began in which Tomado-products symbolized the modern housekeeping. They became very popular and almost every household possessed one or more Tomado products. Due to the popularity of the brand, the company grew rapidly in the 1950s.

Popular products mainly concerned Tomado racks made of iron wire which came in the colours white, black, red, yellow and blue, reminding us of the creations of Gerrit Rietveld and Piet Mondriaan. Very well known were the bookshelves with supports of wire steel and metal shelves in different pastel colours. These are great collector's items at this moment.
