Gijs Bakker


Born in 1942 in the Netherlands, Gijs Bakker studied industrial design and Jewelry in Amsterdam and Stockholm. He works for many companies such as Polaroid, Hema or ENO studio. In 1993, he founds the Droog Design company with Renny Ramakers. He becomes the artistic director of that company until 2009 (see the ‘Chair with holes’ chair). He also founds the « Chi ha paura » foundation (« Who’s afraid? » in Italian) in 1996 whose objective is to demonstrate that a jewel is much more than a fashion accessory. During 40 years, he also teaches in many schools.

His many activities are a reflection of his creations: diverse and varied. Gijs Bakker designed jewels with Emmy van Leersum, house accessories, home appliances, public spaces, exhibitions and furniture (see the Umbrella lamp and the Finger chair).
