Cees Braakman Dutch Teak Sideboard for UMS Pastoe
Sideboard model DU03, in teak and metal, by Cees Braakman for UMS Pastoe, The Netherlands, design 1958, production 1960s.
Elegant and modest teak sideboard by Cees Braakman for UMS Pastoe. This sideboard consists of a small metal base, which creates some lightness to the quite solid cabinet. The credenza consists of three storage compartments of which one is equipped with drawers and the other two with shelves. The warm colored teak nicely combines with the black handles, which are beautifully designed in the wooden surface. The Japanese or U-series was one of the unconventional series of Pastoe. Yet the design is still in line with the characteristic sober and modest style of the company. All tough it looks quite simplistic the Japanese series are highly detailed furniture. As seen in this sideboard on the handles, wood-joints and interior. Please note that the legs appear to be extended.
Cees Braakman (1917-1995) follows his father’s footsteps as the leading designer and manager of Pastoe from 1948. He was inspired by the bent plywood furniture by Charles & Ray Eames and Alvar Aalto and starts to use these innovative production methods at the company. The furniture of Braakman breaths the modernist and social principles.
