All I Want for Christmas / Aldo Bakker
Laureline Galliot, 'Piggy bank', 2013
THE INIMITABLE ALDO Bakker, the Dutch designer for whom inventive form precedes function, is our next Christmas wish list interviewee.
Which collectible design object would you like Father Christmas to bring you?
I would love a work from Laureline Galliot, or Thomas Nathan.
Why these objects?
Because Laureline has a voice of her own – and Thomas did a beautiful project based on a lump of clay. Each lump carries his personal fingerprint, he presses them into a mould and builds bowls and plates like this, so the uniqueness in each lump collectively takes the form of the mould.
You’ve made many pourers, carafes and other jug-type objects in your career, but which ones will find themselves on your table during Christmas Dinner? Yours, or someone else’s?
Hopefully, one of the new pouring vessels we did for J Hill’s Standard, they’ll be ready very soon!
