The Pastoe A'dammer is one of the most famous designs of the very Dutch brand Pastoe. You recognize the special cabinet by its narrow shape, rounded top or sides and striking shutters instead of doors. The shape is a nod to the famous Amsterdam street poles: Amsterdammertjes. This also immediately explains the name of the special design.
The Pastoe Amsterdammer is a classic Dutch design from the mid-20th century. It was designed by Piet Zwart and can be recognized by its simple, modernist design. The Pastoe Amsterdammer is a popular piece of furniture in many Dutch households and is still produced today. It usually has a wooden frame and is upholstered in leather or fabric. Its innovative approach and enduring appeal earned it a place in the Museum of Modern Art's permanent collection in New York, solidifying its status as a design classic.

Continuous efforts are made to improve the sustainability of all processes. This is expressed, for example, in the preservation of old furniture by supplying new parts and the Pastoe Orphanage program, in which young furniture is not thrown away but can be given a new home.
The A'dammer (or Amsterdammer) was designed in 1978 by designer and architect Aldo van den Nieuwelaar. In his designs, van den Nieuwelaar drew inspiration from movements such as De Stijl and Bauhaus. For the design of the A'dammer, van den Nieuwelaar devised an ingenious system: the ribs of the shutters are in fact also the handles of the cabinet. This way, people never have to bend down to open the A'dammer.
