Designer Aldo Bakker (1971) is a Maverick, so wrote the NRC. I quote “If you really want to, you can use his furniture and glass to sit on or to drink, but it chokes of the glass and furniture that are more practical and cheaper”. Aldo Bakker is not for functionality, but rather for creativity. His furniture are rather than a work of art that they can be used for their original function, namely to sit on, to donate, to lie on on etc.
Aldo Bakker is the son of Gijs Bakker, one of the founders of Droog has played an important role in the development of Dutch design. So that you can design Aldo Bakker grew up with is. Aldo Bakker started as a goldsmith and made jewelry. This job, he has also exercised for a long time, and that is reflected in the perfect finish and details of his designs. The funny thing is that Bakker no training has finished. In the end, he learned the trade of silversmith in practice and he has slowly transformed into product designer. Now, he even taught at the Design Academy in Eindhoven.
