MAARTEN BAAS MAKES TIME is an exhibition, a festival of arts, a creative explosion

MAARTEN BAAS MAKES TIMES brings us designer MAARTEN BAAS in the role of the alchemist. For the 15th anniversary of Dutch Design Week he mixes up gastronomy with graphic design, the arts with theatre and shows an amalgamation of Dutch designers using 'time' as a central theme, showcasing the work of renowned designers (Jurgen Bey, Kiki van Eijk) and younger talent (Niels Hoebers, Aart van Asseldonk)

MAARTEN BAAS: “Design is a rather unattractive word for so much that is beautiful. It forms the glue between different disciplines and binds it into an accessible whole. In this exhibition everything comes together and triggers a huge creative explosion!” By eradicating the boundaries between the creative disciplines MAARTEN BAAS designs a complete new creation.

With a sneak peek of the new book Hide & Seek that will be available next year and the world premiere of his most recent work, in collaboration with Carpenters Workshop Gallery MAARTEN BAAS MAKES TIME is a co-creation of artists among whom: celebrated chef Sergio Herman, graphic designer Anthon Beeke, illustrator Nanne Meulendijks, author Ingmar Heytze, photographer Lisa Klappe, theatre director Joris van Midde, artist Sander Veenhof, and many others.

MAARTEN BAAS MAKES TIME is a celebration of the creative disciplines and will leave the visitor enchanted.

Organized by Maarten Baas

Maarten Baas (born 19 February 1978) is a Dutch designer.

From 1979, Baas grew up in Burgh-Haamstede and Hemmen located in the southwest and central region of the Netherlands. After graduating from high school, he began studying at the Design Academy Eindhoven in 1996. Baas is considered to be one of the most influential Dutch designers of the beginning of the 21st century. He is often described as an “author designer,” of which his works lie on the boundaries between art and design. His work is known as rebellious, playful, intellectual, theatrical and artistic. He has gained an autonomous position in the design field, and his work varies from conceptual designs, limited editions, production design, installations, public space, architecture, interior design, theater design and performances.

His works are in major museum collections, such as the MoMa, Victoria & Albert Museum, Les Arts Decoratifs, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Die Neue Sammlung, Stedelijk Museum and Rijksmuseum. And in private collections of Brad Pitt, Kanye West, Ian Schrager and Adam Lindemann. He worked for exclusive brands, such as Louis Vuitton, Swarovski, Dior, Gramercy Park Hotel, Dom Ruinart and Berluti.

From 2005, Baas has collaborated with Bas den Herder as his production partner. Most of his designs are handmade in the “DHPH” studio in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, the Netherlands.
