The original FM60 cube chair was introduced in 1980 during the Triennale in Poznan, Poland. Initially, it was a flatpack, epoxied frame with canvas seating in white, grey, and black. From 1983 the FM61 in colored plywood and FM62 in saddle leather appeared, delivered assembled.
The Pastoe FM18 Scissor lounge chair is a modernist low-sitting chair designed by architect Jan van Grunsven in 1959 and produced by UMS/Pastoe, Utrecht. The chair was made out of laminated layers of plywood. Jan van Grunsven worked at the architect studio Gerrit Rietveld
The world-known Pastoe A-dammer cabinet with its characteristic ribbed roller door was designed by Aldo van den Nieuwelaar in 1978.
Its shape is derived from the (old) Amsterdam parking meters, which also explains the name of the cabinet. The A-dammer can be found in museum collections all over the world.
