DESIGNER

Aldo Bakker, 2013

 

MANUFACTUER

DESCRIPTION

Limited Sycamore Edition 5 of 6

Open and Numbered Oak Edition

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.

The wooden tonus results from the ongoing collaboration between Aldo Bakker and Dutch woodcrafter, Rutger Graas. This Tonus edition is hand-carved in European oak wood while the piece is still fresh and wet allowing the craftsman’s hand to sculpt its continuous movement.

Over years-long drying period, the wood will deform, burst, crack, and close. As a live organism, the strong muscular shape that was initially given to the Tonus stool consequently changes over time. The forever-active shape is emphasized by the cracks of the wood. Both the shape and the material seem to burst out of their initial posture, prolonging the work of the craftsman’s hands that gave it birth.

ABOUT RUTGER GRAAS

Rutger Graas is responsible for almost all the wooden furniture of Aldo. He works as an independent craftsman in a studio north of Amsterdam.

‘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
