Until 21st May 2011 in Zuidersee museum you can visit the originally composed exhibition entitled EMMY+GIJS+ALDO, which presents for the first time conceptual works of Emmy van Leersum, Gijs Bakker and Aldo Bakker together. Wife and husband Emmy and Gijs meet in the exposition their own son Aldo. All the creators are considered to be as the important representatives of the specific dutch design style for the last 30 years.
On this occasion we remember one older design by Gijs Bakker, founder of the Droog movement and one of the most important European design creators of our time. Everybody knows his typical minimalist spectacles that he wears all the time. Bakker has designed this spectacles in 1972 as a prototype for Polaroid. It is interesting that very puristic form of the design has became iconic on the head of
its creator only.
EMMY+GIJS+ALDO, 31st October 2010 - 21st May 2010, Zuidersee Museum, Enkhuizen, The Netherlands
