Tomotom chair and conforming shelf unit, Bernard Holdaway, Hull Traders, UK, 1996. 

Launched to great acclaim at The Ideal Home Exhibition in 1966 this was another range of furniture from the Pop era that was only produced for a short amount of time. That was half the point with Pop, taking advantage of the new ‘throw-away’ fashion.

Made from cardboard tube reinforced by enamel spray and seat from chipboard held by metal pins. When the development of these began the cardboard tubes were sourced from Bowater Paper Company and were intended as formers for poured concrete in motorway construction.

The chairs were originally sold with touch up paint and brushes in the full anticipation of chipping and flaking occurring during use. Buyers were encouraged to repaint them as they wished.
