Now the Future: A few observations, food for thought. Aldo Bakker likes to refer to himself as a “form giver”. Which is very interesting when style or a formalistic approach to design is frowned upon in most design education. His shapes are in my eyes very futuristic. Not just organic and pointless. They have emotion, character and propose a new interpretation of objects. Above, Tonus (wood), photo by Erik and Petra Hesmerg.
