The forward-thinking designs of Cees Braakman (1917-1995) paved the way for success for Pastoe from the early fifties. In the beginning of his career Braakman went to the US to study design and production processes. Clearly inspired by designs of Eames and Knoll, Braakman and Pastoe introduced the bent plywood techniques into their first line of modern furniture. Cees Braakman was one of the most influentual designers of the Netherlands after the second world war.
