The Mahogany Stool is the wooden version of Aldo Bakker’s Pink Stool, originally made with Urushi lacquer. It has a calm and self-reliant attitude. It consists of two contradictive container shapes put together: an upright and deep vertical shape and a flat horizontal shape that defines the seating.
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.
