Birch Plywood FB03 Combex Plywood Armchair by Cees Braakman for UMS Pastoe, 1952

About

Beautiful molded plywood armchair, Model FB03 from the Combex series, designed in 1952 by Cees Braakman for UMS Pastoe. After his return from the US in 1949, Cees Braakman and UMS Pastoe decided to start creating modern, affordable and low-cost furniture for the Dutch market. During his stay in the US in 1948, Braakman visited the International Competition for Low Cost Furniture Design in the Museum of Modern Art in New York. A sketch of "The Seating Unit Bamboo chair 4" by Japanese architect Junzo Sakakura had inspired Braakman to design the FB03 lounge chair for the Pastoe Combex series in 1952. A modern and practical chair, designed to be manufactured at low cost in large series. Very few of these chairs survived, this FB03 lounge chair is a rare find. Literature: Staal, G en van der Zwaag, A., Pastoe 100 jaar vernieuwing en vormgeving. NAI 10, Rotterdam p. 88.
