TriAngle

- Aldo Bakker -

The Dutch designer, Aldo Bakker, is known for his uncompromising approach to design. This is a perfect example of his work. TriAngle consists of 12 triangular elements—cut to fit together like the perfect puzzle. The final puzzle reveals a square stool or side table with a distinguished and very precise look.

The sharp corners and visible cuts will become softer and gain patina over time, making tear, wear and decay a very essential part of this design. Aldo Bakkers’ work has a delicate and rare sense of harmony and his ideas are always intended to trigger a response.

He wants to challenge us with his design, to make us stop our everyday routines for a minute and ponder over an odd little feature, hopefully making us perform our everyday casual acts with more attention.
