Bakker, Gijs

(The Netherlands, 1942)

Gijs Bakker was trained as a jewellery and industrial-designer at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam, the Netherlands and the Konstfack Skolen in Stockholm, Sweden. Bakker’s designs cover jewellery, home accessories and household appliances, furniture, interiors, public spaces and exhibitions. He worked and works for numerous companies: Polaroid, Artifort, HEMA, Van Kempen & Begeer, and recently for ENO Studio in France. In 1993, Gijs Bakker founded together with design critic and historian Renny Ramakers Droog Design, a Dutch collection of designers, products and information. Together with Ramakers, Bakker is the selector and art director of all products within Droog Design. Bakker also teaches for more than 40 years at different schools, among others the Delft University of Technology. After teaching at the Design Academy Eindhoven for more than 15 years, Bakker is now head of the Masters department, IM. Together with Italian gallery owner Marijke Vallanzasca Bakker founded the Chi ha paura…? (Italian for who is afraid for) foundation in 1996. With Chi ha paura…? (CHP…?) Bakker wants to show the international design world that a piece of jewellery is more than a decorative fashion accessory. CHP…? challenges the fear for the contemporary jewellery. Gijs Bakker travels around the world to give workshops, lectures about his own work, CHP…? and Droog Design and is frequently a member in juries. Currently his retrospective exhibition “Gijs Bakker and Jewelry” and the regarding catalogue are on display in various museums around the world. Gijs Bakker’s work is represented in collections, both in museums and private worldwide.
