bakkie doen
2017

“Bakkie Doen” (drink a cup of coffee and have a chat) serves an important social theme, the fight against loneliness among the elderly. We hope this product encourages the meeting between young and old. Bakkie Doen consists of an array of 200 unique contemporary mugs with 200 unique stories. Every mug tells the story of its owner. An elderly owner. The Bakkie Doen mug itself is also a meeting between a modern tableware and tableware from a bygone era. A symbol for the meeting between young and old that Bakkie Doen wants to encourage. It doesn’t matter if it are your parents, your grandparents or that elderly lady who lives next door, these are all people with beautiful stories and life lessons. This is what makes Bakkie Doen a design that matters!
