A rework of Dutch artist and designer, Aldo Bakker’s wondrous Pink Stool in urushi lacquer from 2015, Bon in stained ash exudes Bakker’s accomplished sense of serene form and materiality. The sculptural stool consists of two contradictive container shapes put together: an upright and deep vertical shape and a flat horizontal shape that defines the seating.
Aldo Bakker (1971) is a Dutch designer, with an uncompromising approach to design. His work has a delicate and rare sense of harmony, in which shapes communicate through association, touch, texture, and materiality. His designs are often strange, yet strangely familiar. Always intended to trigger a response.
