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.
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.
