La célèbre firme de mobilier design Pastoe fête les 25 ans de sa ligne Vision, un des plus grands succès de la marque néerlandaise. La série de meubles de rangement, imaginée en 1985 par les designers Pierre Mazairac et Karel Boonzaaijer n’a jamais cessé d’être commercialisée depuis cette date. Des éléments variés conçus comme des éléments d’architecture : voici la philosophie au coeur de la ligne Vision, et probablement la raison de son succès. L’an passé, les créateurs suisse et hollandais se sont retruvés pour donner une “suite” à l’aventure Vision, avec la gamme Vision Next.
Famed Dutch furniture brand Pastoe celebrates the 25th birthday of the successful Vision line. The dresser system developed for in 1985 by designers Pierre Mazairac and Karel Boonzaaijerby has remained in production without interruption for 25 years. Both wanted to create a cabinet as an architectural composition element. Last year, the Swiss and Dutch designers even teamed up to add Vision Next elements to the original line.
From the Pastoe website :
After his training at the Academy of Fine Arts, Pierre Mazairac (born in 1943) worked as a stylist and interior designer. He was also a member of the Pastoe design team from 1975 to 1981. He has been living and working in Switzerland since 1994 and is mainly active in leisure design.
In 1980, Pierre Mazairac and Karel Boonzaaijer started the Mazairac/Boonzaaijer & Partners design firm in Zeist. They designed Vision using the philosophy of having a cabinet as an architectural composition element.
Karel Boonzaaijer (born in 1948) began his design career as a furniture maker. After completing evening studies in architectural design at the arts academy, he joined furniture manufacturer Pastoe. Together with the Pastoe design team, he developed, among other things, the L-160 cabinet system in 1975, which is still in use internationally.
