Marteen Baas * the design world

We are in Arnsberg, Germany, in 1978, when a revolutionary designer was born … present you Maarten Baas.

He finished his studies at the Design Academy Eindhoven and during that time he created his first commercial success, the Knuckle candleholder. Thanks to his commitment and dedication at the end of his graduation, he already had two designs, the charred furniture Smoke series and Sundial.

A curiosity? This work was adopted in the collection of Dutch label MOOOI, of Marcel Wanders. And quickly became a known worldwide collection and displayed in places of huge success (Milan, London and Paris).In 2004, Baas debuted his Smoke series as a solo-exhibition. “Where There’s Smoke” is its name and showed 25 pieces of furniture.

In 2005, Baas began working with Bas den Herder, who now produces all of his works. This partnership gave him the opportunity to produce unique pieces on a large scale and thus also grab other projects.

What makes Baas a single designer? His pieces are all unique and handmade, though produced in series. He takes advantage of everything and fully explores the world of design, not staying focused on what is conventional or not. Sculpt and Clay are some examples of his series.

One of his works that we consider the most fascinating and daring is the “empty chair” for the Amnesty International.  This masterpiece is a symbol for Liu Xiaobo and many others who’re in jail for expressing their opinion.
