Cees Braakman KB03 wardrobe for Pastoe, the Netherlands 1955

Wardrobe KB03 from the birch series designed by Cees Braakman for UMS Pastoe, The Netherlands 1955. The Birch series is known for its gracefully curved birch plywood legs. The wardrobe includes a fully furnished interior with a big mirror, a small curved wooden tray, four shelves, and a clothing rod. The off-white and grey-blue doors add to its appeal. Everything has been checked, cleaned, and is sturdy for immediate use. This piece perfectly embodies the minimalist aesthetics of the Dutch Rietveld modernist era. The wardrobe is in very good clean condition, with just a few imperfections in the door paint.

Cees Braakman’s innovative approach played a crucial role in the Dutch Pastoe furniture company’s achievements. In his earlier years, Braakman traveled to the US to learn about design and manufacturing methods. He drew inspiration from designers like Eames, Wormley and Knoll. Pastoe incorporated bent plywood techniques into their initial line of modernist furniture, the Combex and Birch Series.
