Since it was designed in 2000, Glass Carafe has been hiding in Aldo Bakker’s prototype archive. The carafe’s wide bottom that converts into a very slender neck creates a soft and organic shape. The same shape is mirrored in the drinking glass, which doubles as a lid for the carafe itself. Whether the two are placed next to each other or with the glass upside down on top, the shape of the set has a fascinating and eye-catching appeal.
The work of Dutch artist and designer Aldo Bakker (born 1971) has a delicate and rare sense of harmony and the shapes communicate through colour, association, touch, texture, and materiality. His designs are exquisitely balanced, often strange, yet strangely familiar. Timeless, sculptural and always intended to trigger a response. Widely published and exhibited, Aldo Bakker continues selected collaborations with renown manufacturers while further completing his personal collection with master craftsmen and galleries around the world.
