New Angles: daily inspiration

Aldo Bakker

Posted in design, furniture, kitchen by menno1976 on September 21, 2009

Dutch designer Aldo Bakker‘s work is designed to influence the factor of “time”. Eternity and endlessness are recurring concepts in his pieces. His work is smooth, durable and serene, yet dynamic enough to capture one’s attention. The pieces provoke a kind of meditative state in its beholders, slowing the passage of time and creating a “time gap”.

Materials used are silver, ceramics, glass, wood and Urushi (Japanese lacquer).

technical ceramics, green tea Urushi

Water carafe, porcelain

Milk or oil can , porcelain

I also like Aldo Bakker’s furniture very much, it’s so otherworldly…
