15 Maarten Baas
“It focuses on the tension between art and commerce,” says Maarten Baas of his contribution to the RoundAbout Design Route, which will be open during Dutch Design Week (DDW). The designer represents this area of tension with a shelter. On either side of an old-fashioned billboard are two bronze seats made by Eindhoven’s Beeldenstorm Foundation.
Baas is no stranger to DDW. Last year visitors could admire his work at the Stroomhuis. This year he is even an ambassador of the design week. Based on the theme of time, and titled ‘Maarten Baas makes time’, the designer will present an exhibition at the VDMA building on the Vestdijk. Expect a lot of art, but also plenty of gastronomy.
