Emmy + Gijs + Aldo
Gijs Bakker and Emmy van Leersum caused a stir in the 1960s with their enormous collars and head ornaments made of aluminum. This book examines the work of Gijs Bakker, one of the founders of Droog Design, his wife Emmy van Leersum and their son Aldo Bakker, himself a successful designer. Jan Boelen's text focuses on the relationship between designer and object, a facet largely overlooked in previous exhibitions and books on their work. The design process and research can also shed important light on what unites the three, as well as on their individuality. This book gathers together their sources of inspiration, writings, sketches, interviews and quotes. It also features a picture essay showing previously unpublished visual material from the designers' archive and studio.
