Gijs and Aldo Bakker in Hyères

At the opening of the 5th Design Parade in Hyères, Gijs Bakker – designer, teacher and co-founder of Droog Design – was confronted by an exhibition that showed an overview of the work of Aldo Bakker, his son. Here, the elder Bakker describes the emotions of the experience and why it now makes him smile if people ask him if he is in the same profession as his offspring.
