The Console Table is the wooden version of Aldo Bakker’s Green Table, originally made with Urushi lacquer. It depicts the simplest concept of a table: two legs and a surface. The legs are an elongation of the line created by the tabletop. The tabletop and the base of the legs have the same width, making them equally important to the design.
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.
