TOMA is a design studio in Montreal that produces sleek playful objects that brighten up daily living with a wink of humour and a sparkle of spirit. Conceived by graphic designers, the objects mix form and function in a visual syntax that includes their presentation and packaging.
The creator of TOMA and also its designer and art director, Anne Thomas, has a background in graphic design and consulting for business through the studio that she founded in 1990, Thomas design+communication. It was a short step from communicating through graphic objects, to creating objects that communicate themselves. This is what Anne did when she launched the first TOMA collection in 2006. Through TOMA, she continues to demonstrate her skill for working with beautiful materials in the context of space and scale and, along with her design team, daily rituals are reinterpreted through urban, environmentally responsible objects that are both elegant and playful.
