Aldo Bakker: Pouring Vessels
October 22, 2022 - May 7, 2023
Kunstmuseum Den Haag:
Stadhouderslaan 41, 2517 HV Den Haag, Netherlands

Dozens of sculptural carafes highlight the Dutch designer’s experimental approach to creating “schenkers,” whether rendered in materials like silver and Japanese lacquer or for brands like J Hill’s Standard and Puiforcat. “Although ultimately just functional objects that have to meet a variety of technical and functional criteria, Bakker’s designs also stimulate the sensorial and imaginative capacities of their users and beholders,” historian Ernst van Alphen writes about the show. “That’s how each newly designed pouring vessel embodies a new feeling, a new imagination.”
