About the book:

 

The Dutch furniture manufacturer Pastoe was founded in April 1913 in Utrecht. Today, the company is still producing unique, timeless furniture of great craftsmanship and quality in the same factory where everything started 100 years ago. To mark its centenary, Pastoe have brought out a striking book entitled ‘Pastoe. 100 years of Design innovation’ (nai010 publishers), produced in collaboration with designers, architects, artists and photographers, both in the Netherlands and abroad.

The author and design critic Gert Staal narrates the most significant moments in Pastoe’s history. The chronology of the company’s product development over the past 100 years is richly illustrated, and features a detailed index of every important Pastoe design, as well as archival photographs, drawings, advertising material, and so on.

But the book is not only a retrospective: Pastoe’s current focus is also discussed at length and new visions of contemporary living are highlighted in creative propositions specially developed for the anniversary by such innovators as Naoto Fukasawa, Claudio Silvestrin, Scheltens & Abbenes and Konstantin Grcic.
