TOMA is a Montreal-based creative studio that aims to enhance daily living through humor and wit. Fusing form with functionality, TOMA’s urban objects have a playful, graphical tone. Created by graphic designers, the object’s design elements coherently find their way right into the presentation and packaging. Creator, designer and art director Anne Thomas founded Thomas design+communication in 1990—a studio that combines graphic arts and consulting services to produce visual solutions for businesses. It was a short step from communication by object to objects that communicate, one that Anne took in 2006 when she launched the TOMA collection. Showing her knack for combining materials and spatial volumes, she and her design team reinterpret our daily rituals by creating urban, environment-friendly objects that are both elegant and playful. Monica Gautier has been working with Anne for the past two years. With a background in graphic and industrial design, she shares the same personal interest in object design and has co-designed the Inside Out collection with Anne.
