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.
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.
