The Frame Side­board designed by Studio Pastoe is a contem­po­rary side­board on a slim black lacquer support. The wide aluminum handles that stress the extended hori­zon­tal form. The frame was inspired by the famous U+N series by Cees Braak­man from 1958 and is trans­lated into a modern design language using new tech­niques and mate­ri­als. The Frame side­board features a pure, modest and mini­mal­ist design that is a trade­mark of Pastoe

Noted here is Frame side­board combi­na­tion F02. Avail­able with Amer­i­can walnut top, front and sides with 301 black lacquer inte­rior, handles, and base. This unit measures 106 – 1/4″ x 21 – 1/4″ x 23 – 1/2″ and is part of our quick-ship program.

Looking at the history of Pastoe, there is a great consis­tency in model policy, product devel­op­ment, and design. Consis­tent work is done to create a Pastoe language’: basic geomet­ric forms, mini­mal­ist detail­ing and the option to config­ure the object accord­ing to personal choice within the given frame­work. An enthu­si­as­tic team works in the Pastoe studio, bring­ing dedi­ca­tion and passion to creat­ing Pastoe furni­ture. In addi­tion to working with exter­nal design­ers, the studio trans­lates signals from the market into furni­ture that is seam­lessly aligned with Pastoe’s design vision.

Studio Pastoe

Netherlands

Over its more than hundred year history, the Dutch furniture masters Pastoe proved Modernism’s main point time and time again: good design should not only be accessible, but adaptable. Founded in 1913 by Frits Loeb as a carpentry shop, Pastoe came into its own when Cees Braakman took the reigns in 1945 and combined a fascination with the work of American designers including Charles and Ray Eames with the company’s legacy of craftsmanship. The result was a series of cabinets including 1948’s Oak and 1950’s Birch, which asserted a geometric aesthetic which clients could mix and match to their liking. Pastoe went a step further in 1955 with their “Made-to-Measure” series, which consumers could assemble and customize themselves.

While Pastoe’s 1950s Wire Chair by Braakman and Adriaan Dekker would rival Bertoia in its deft, airy structure, the company’s true genius remained evident in its storage systems. A pinnacle of the High Tech movement of the 1970s, the A’dammer series by Aldo van den Nieuwelaar transformed parking bollards into cool columns with domed tops and tambour doors, coated in ever-updating palettes of lacquer. And Karel Boonzaaijer + Pierre Mazairac’s Vision system like that of the company itself, looks timeless, with seam-free boxes and open shelving ready to be arranged in any form imaginable.
