Description

The Support cup by Karakter is situated somewhere between art and an everyday object, as is often the case with designer Aldo Bakker’s works. Comprised of two parts that support one another, Support is at home not only as a drinking cup and vessel in the kitchen but also as a sculptural piece in the bookshelf or on a windowsill.

Aldo Bakker, born 1971, is known for his desire to create pieces whose function is not always immediately clear but require a bit more use or observation. Instead of just being used, he wants his designs to evoke feelings – he often incorporates unusual and surprising yet at the same time vaguely familiar elements to his creations. The autodidact designer is keen to follow his own path.

Many of Aldo Bakker’s designs are unique pieces or manufactured in small editions, but he has also collaborated with the likes of Georg Jensen, Karakter and Swarovski during his career. Bakker’s designs have been acquired by several museums both in his native Netherlands as well as abroad: MoMA in New York, Centre Pompidou in Paris, Rijksmuseum Amsterdam and Victoria & Albert Museum in London, to name a few.
