November 27 – April 27, 2019

Maarten Baas (b. 1978, Holland) is one of the most outstanding designers of his generation. His diverse body of works consists of furniture, objects, installations, videos and performances. The series Smoke (2002), Baas’ graduation project at the Eindhoven Design Academy, involved burning furniture and subsequently restoring it by means of epoxy resin. This series earned international praise in the media, and established his name as a designer. Reflections on time, transience, memories and future expectations are woven throughout Baas’ work. His series Real Time (2009-2010), for instance, consists of video projections in which different people (the artist included) constantly wipe out the time. Design, for him, is more closely aligned with giving artistic expression to his imagination than with a quest for the best functional design.

Baas‘ oeuvre has endowed him with a unique position both within and beyond the design world. In 2009, he was the youngest designer ever to receive the Designer of the Year Award at Design Miami. Early on in his career, he also began collaborating with companies such as Louis Vuitton, Swarovski and Dior. His work can be found both in private and public collections including the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Victoria & Albert, London, and the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam. The Groninger Museum in the Netherlands has been following Baas’ work since his graduation, nourishing a special bond with the artist through commissions and special acquisitions. The current exhibition – the first major overview of Baas’ works – was originally presented at the Groninger Museum.
