The Mahogany Stool is the wooden version of Aldo Bakker’s Pink Stool, originally made with Urushi lacquer. It has a calm and self-reliant attitude. It 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.
