“My designs are not based on fashion. They are unique pieces, not necessarily understandable at a glance, but meant for a slow, layer by layer exploration.” Much like all other designs by dutch Aldo Bakker this intriguing shape is designed to surprise. The bottom of Fat One resembles an apple. And where you’ll normally find the stem of the apple, Bakker has connected one end of the handle. The other end is connected to the opening and lid.
Fat One is made in silver, bent through electro forming and grown around a perfect model using CNC milling to ensure the precise positioning of the handle. The handle is made in steel, to ensure enough strength to hold the Fat One.
Aldo Bakker (1971) has an uncompromising take on design. His work has a delicate and rare sense of harmony and the shapes communicate through association, touch, texture, and materiality. His designs are often strange, yet strangely familiar. Always intended to trigger a response.
