Gijs Bakker and Emmy van Leersum caused a stir in the 1960s with their aluminium collar and headwear designs; Bakker co-founded Droog Design and the pair's son, Aldo, is also a successful designer.

Accompanying an exhibition in Enkhuizen, Netherlands, and utilising much unpublished material, this book sheds important light on the trio's designs and personal connections. Jan Boelen examines the relationship between designer and object, a previously overlooked aspect of the three's work, and demonstrates how different design processes contribute to the three designer's distinct personalities, as well as their similarities.
