'Moooi and RSGA Design reach agreement'

Relaunch for bankrupt Dutch furniture factory Pastoe; Marcel Wanders becomes co-owner

A new future unfolds for Pastoe through an acquisition by a joint venture between lifestyle brand Moooi and RSGA Design, which comprises Rietveld Originals, Spectrum, Gelderland, and Atelier Artiforte. On March 29, 2024, Moooi and RSGA Design reached a final agreement with curator Mr. Bas van Dijen of Okkerse & Schop Advocaten on behalf of Pastoe's estate regarding the mentioned acquisition. Marcel Wanders (Moooi) becomes co-owner.

Moooi and RSGA Design recognize the immense potential to rejuvenate the Pastoe brand and its unique collection under their combined flag, forming the new entity Pastoe Furniture BV. In the upcoming period, there will be a focused effort on optimizing the collection and restarting production in a modified form. Distribution will occur through the existing channels of both Moooi and RSGA Design.

It's a harsh truth that bankruptcy always brings damage. Moooi and RSGA Design are acutely aware of this and will endeavor to engage in discussions with the involved parties where possible.

In a statement, Robin Bevers, CEO of Moooi, emphasized the importance of respecting the past while shaping the future. "At Moooi, we always aim to approach the future with respect for the past. We want to connect the metaphors of yesterday with those of tomorrow, thus creating timeless creative luxury. Pastoe is an important brand with a rich history. We are delighted that, together with our partners from RSGA Design, we have managed to preserve Pastoe for the Netherlands and for the world."

RSGA Design founder Titus Darley: "Pastoe is a quintessentially Dutch brand with international appeal. It enriches our portfolio of strong design brands. Through collaboration with Moooi, we are able to revitalize Pastoe, ensuring it regains the position it deserves within the unique furniture collection landscape."

"The collaboration between Moooi and RSGA Design creates a powerful combination that enables the sale of Pastoe furniture worldwide. This opens up new opportunities and clear growth prospects for the brand," an enthusiastic Titus Darley remarked.

Moooi and RSGA Design will soon inform various stakeholders (such as suppliers, consumers, and dealers) separately about the new situation and any potential implications.

The acquisition of Pastoe by Moooi and RSGA Design marks a new chapter in the history of this Dutch design legend and promises an exciting future full of possibilities for lovers of high-quality and timeless design.
