Braakman, Cees

Cees Braakman (1917-1995) The Netherlands Cees Braakman began working at Pastoe in 1934 at the age of 17. His father was a head draftsman at the company. He help produce the classical designs that Pastoe made at that time. After the war Braakman was sent to the USA to study other manufacturers design and production processes. He visited twelve companies but was most inspired at Herman Miller were he learned about the work of Charles and Ray Eames. When he returned to Holland he began experimenting with bending plywood and created the first modern line of furniture for Pastoe. This line of furniture was well supported and promoted by ‘Stichting Goed Wonen’ (Good Living Foundation). A group devoted to improve the standard of living both for designers and consumers. Braakman devoted much of his attention to the design of modular cabinets, such as the U+N series, with the accent on first class materials.
