TriAngle Stool Design by Aldo Bakker for Karakter
Karakter’s TriAngle comprises 12 triangular parts that fit together like the pieces of a puzzle to create a stool or a small side table. Made of ash, TriAngle is adorned with a beautiful natural grain pattern that makes each stool a unique piece. Patina and wear and tear also have an important role in the design: as the stool is used over and over again, its sharp corners will become softer and the lines between the 12 parts will fade.SHOP NOW SHOP NOW SHOP NOW
Designer Aldo Bakker
Aldo Bakker, born 1971, is known for his desire to create pieces whose function is not always immediately clear but require a bit more use or observation. Instead of just being used, he wants his designs to evoke feelings – he often incorporates unusual and surprising yet at the same time vaguely familiar elements to his creations. The autodidact designer is keen to follow his own path.
Many of Aldo Bakker’s designs are unique pieces or manufactured in small editions, but he has also collaborated with the likes of Georg Jensen, Karakter and Swarovski during his career. Bakker’s designs have been acquired by several museums both in his native Netherlands as well as abroad: MoMA in New York, Centre Pompidou in Paris, Rijksmuseum Amsterdam and Victoria & Albert Museum in London, to name a few.SHOP NOW
