‘Keyed to Detail, No Matter How Crazy’, by Alice Rawsthorn – The Sensual Intelligence of Designer Aldo Bakker

Posted by the editors on Monday, 14 November 2011

Alice Rawsthorn, the keen-eyed observer of all things design, has written a very interesting article entitled “Keyed to Detail, No Matter How Crazy” in the Art & Design section of The New York Times, looking at the wide variety of designs created by Dutch designer Aldo Bakker, son of Droog Design group co-founder Gijs Bakker and jewelry designer Emmy van Leersum.  With an extraordinarily sharp eye, a sensual sense of detail, and a painstaking rigor in fabrication, Aldo Bakker’s creations are well-worth the detour.  Based in Amsterdam, a selection of Bakker’s work will be shown at the gallery Perimeter  in Paris, 18 November 2011 through 15 January 2012.
