DESCRIPTION

Limited Edition 5 of 6

Signed & Numbered

Bakker describes the design idea of ‘Anura' as for one continuous shape to integrate the seat, back and the legs of the seat. His intention being to make the transitions between the supporting members of the seat seamless. 


Anura was initially created for the Wallpaper* handmade series and was made in collaboration with leather manufacturer Santiago Gonzalez. The commission resulted in a stool with a submissive, animal-like posture that has been upholstered with an alligator skin. The Anura seat has been developed in a couple editions of 5 and 6 in different wood finishes. The sculptural stool has been hand-carved in one solid piece of Maple wood by long-time collaborator and master woodcrafter, Rutger Graas.  

Based in the North of Amsterdam, master-craftsman Rutger Graas is responsible for almost all the wooden furniture of Aldo. ‘Ever since I started collaborating with Aldo, I have been challenged to push the limit of my work. Aldo’s commitment to his vision of objects’ design, life and matter has been most inspiring to me and to why I am working as an independent craftsman. My point of views in regards to details or overall balance and aesthetic only comes into place when looking for solutions to Aldo’s design ideas, which can be sometimes challenging.’ – Rutger Graas
