The Pastoe Wire was designed in 1958 by Cees Braakman and Adriaan Dekker. After the Second World War, when construction materials were in short supply, steel wire proved to be a cheap, functional and strong material for 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 chair is available in 6 frame-colors and with an optional cushion.
