Tomotom Side Table Designed By Bernard Holdaway For Hull Traders Furniture Ltd
An original Tomotom side table manufactured by the Hull Trading Funrniture company.
The Tomotom side table is a three tier stand comprising a cardboard tube body with a large aperture on one side, inside which a chipboard shelf is inserted.
The table was created by British designer Bernard Holdaway as a later addition to the first Tomotom cardboard collection that was launched to great success at the Ideal Home Exhibition of 1966. All conceived on a circular theme, the range comprised of chairs, tables and lamps coated with tough enamel spray of a plain, eye catching colour with a high gloss finish. Conceived as cheap throwaway furniture and sold by mail order, the collection struck a chord with the young, fashion conscious families of the late sixties and established itself as an instant Pop classic.
