 Cees Braakman began working at Pastoe at 17, where he learned
the trade while following in his father's footsteps. He convinced the company to focus on developing flexible cabinet systems which could be assembled by the consumer. This innovative concept came to radical fruition in 1955 in the Made-to-Measure furniture series.

 Cees Braakman turned this stuffy furniture factory into artist studio and also set out to improve the look of the company's catalogs and marketing collateral.
