During ICFF Droog New York presented “The Copper Collection,” a new series designed by Aldo Bakker for Thomas Eyck. The presentation was on from May 15th until June 4th.
Saturday, May 15th
6:00 – 8:00 pm
The approach of Aldo Bakker can be best described as designing from the inside out. Bakker allows his products to take shape on the basis of analysis so that they can question their usage and, where necessary, give rise to new rituals or break existing patterns. “The Copper Collection” is a fresh and innovative approach to very old and new techniques like moulding, galvanising and lacquering has resulted in an astonishing collection comprising a stool, watering can, soy pourer, candleholders, mixing bowl and saucepan.
The Copper Collection is part of the characteristic Thomas Eyck collection developed and published by Thomas Eyck. This collection is grows slowly by commissioning one carefully selected designer to create a series of products in a one carefully selected material each year. In the view of Thomas Eyck, the union of design, material and a careful process of product development from the first idea until the finishing touch are very important.
The Thomas Eyck collection available in New York exclusively at Droog New York also features objects by Christien Meindertsma, Scholten & Baijings and Studio Job.
