The forward-thinking of Dutch designers such as Cees Braakman paved the way of success for a number of Dutch furniture companies. Clearly inspired by designs of Eames, Knoll and Danish furniture makers, Pastoe, Fristho, Tijsseling and many others introduced the bent plywood techniques and the use of prefab board into their first line of modern furniture.
