Gijs Bakker

I know Gijs Bakker as one of the founders of Droog Design. This strip chair was his very first product in 1974. Together with the Dutch laboratory TNO he developed a new revelutionary technique to bend laminated wood. Gijs Bakker has said it is essential for an artist to be able to take time to refine a product or process. It took a period of 1,5 year to take this chair into production. Fortunately, producer Castelijn gave Bakker all freedom he needed.
