Bakker’s Tonus series belongs to the permanent collections of the Centre Pompidou and the Centre National des Arts Plastiques in Paris, the Vitra Museum, the Zuiderzeemuseum Enkhuizen and the Design Museum of Gent.

As Trish Lorenz write in her Financial Times article about Aldo’s Urushi pieces presented in his exhibition at Les Ateliers Courbet: “The Art of Urushi lacquering is slow, laborious, repetitive and risky as there is no way to erase mistakes.”  The centuries-old Japanese lacquer, Urushi envelops objects or furniture pieces with a soft and yet extremely resistant skin. The lacquer must be perfectly stretched onto the surface intensifying and bringing depth to its color.  

Aldo has developed work layered with a pure Urushi finish since 2005. “I fell in love with Urushi on my first encounter with it, and I think I will keep working with it for the rest of my life,” says Bakker. “I like the fact that it is 100 per cent natural and ages beautifully and has a real depth and quality of surface and color. Even very new and contemporary pieces have a sense of maturity and age to them.”
