Aldo Bakker Side Table Green Karakter Coppenhagen Editions

About

Many items in Karakter's collection can be defined by their production methods, innovative construction practices that minimize the use of unnecessary materials. Aldo Bakker's Coffee Table consists of a single sheet of steel, cut so that it can be “rolled up” into a table in one smooth motion. Due to the spiral shape, a self-supporting construction is created. Coffee Table is an artistic, geometric table unlike any other. About the artist: Born in the Netherlands in 1971 to Dutch designers Gija Bakker and Emmy Van Leersum, Bakker grew up in an environment infused with a strong aesthetic sensibility. Deciding against traditional education and instead following his own path, he was first trained as a silversmith working on commission. Bakker set up his own studio in 1994, later moving into furniture and product design. Bakker is interested in organic forms and movements that defies time, zeitgeist, functionality and purposes. Those who see Aldo’s design for the first time are often drawn to the form or the materiality before they wonder what their purpose is. This engaging and intriguing moment is important to the designer who grew his own unconventional approach to design in the scholarly household of two Dutch design icons. As opposed to most designers, Bakker rarely starts a design idea from the desire to solve a problem or address practical needs. Most of his objects start from the fascination for the timeless beauty of a form and the movement it may suggest; the form and its movement would then inspire a function. The cleverness and oddity of Aldo’s designs give his object some type of natural legitimacy and timelessness. Bakker’s pieces result from the dexterity of his master craftsmen collaborators — silversmith Jan Matthesius, ceramicist Frans Ottink, woodcrafter Rutger Graas, urushi master Sergej Kirilov or metalsmith Andre van Loon among others. Widely published and exhibited in Europe today, Aldo held his first large exhibition at the Amsterdam Gallery ‘Binnen’. Invited by Ilse Crawford of the Eindhoven Design Academy in 2002, Bakker has fulfilled a successful tenure at the Design university for over ten years. Today the designer continues selected collaborations with renown manufacturers while further completing his personal collection with master craftsmen and galleries around the world.
