Pastoe Wire Frame Collection by Cees Braakman and Adriaan Dekke
Updated: Jan 28, 2020
Cees Braakman designed the lounge chair in 1958, together with Adriaan Dekker. As was the case in the 1950s, the chair is available in two editions: the FM06 and FM05, with and without armrests. With its minimalistic design, the wire lounge chair complements an extensive range of interiors in terms of style and size thanks to its dimensions and visual appearance. Its well-thought out wire design gives the lounge chair a light and airy look; it is simultaneously modern and timeless.
After the Second World War, when construction materials were in short supply, steel wire proved to be a cheap, functional and strong means of making chairs. Living rooms tended to be small and the transparent chair needed less space than traditional furniture. The chairs were a great success and fashionable among young families, who considered them a modern, rebellious statement. This edition is the new and improved Wire. The seat has been adapted to current sensibilities and a wide range of colours is now available, so you can create the rebellious combination of your choice.
The basic model of the chair has an upholstered seat, while the back cushion is optional. The wooden armrests on the FM06 are crafted from high-quality walnut or oak.
