Maarten Baas

  • Maarten Baas

    Maarten Baas (1978) graduated from the Design Academy in Eindhoven in 2002 and caused international sensations with his graduate collection, the Smoke furniture range. Baas literally set fire to old chairs and tables before coating them in an epoxy resin to preserve the charred remains. By stripping away ornament Baas diminishes the hands-off preciousness of design and brings the objects closer to their true purpose, as common tables and chairs. The brilliantly coloured Clay series carries this idea of functional imperfection further. By hand-modelling a clay composite around basic metal structures, Baas creates organic forms that differ with each piece.
