This volume marks 100 years of the Utrecht furniture manufacturer Pastoe, whose brand has long been a byword for timeless furniture of superior craftsmanship. Known both in the Netherlands and worldwide for its skilled design and construction, Pastoe has endured for an entire century. Its roll-front Amsterdammer cabinet, for example, has been a design classic for decades now, enjoying pride of place alongside the work of Pastoe designer Cees Braakman in Amsterdam’s Stedelijk Museum. With the collaboration of designers and artists, author and design critic Gert Staal chronicles significant moments in Pastoe’s history. Staal documents the company’s evolution through archival pictures, featuring every major Pastoe design. We also gain insights into Pastoe’s vision for contemporary living thanks to the inclusion of the centenary designs developed with renowned designers such as Naoto Fukasawa, Claudio Silvistrin, Scheltens & Abbenes and Konstantin Grcic.
