TAGGED AS Burning, Design Basel, Design Miami, Furniture, Maartan Baas, Pearl Lam Design
I have been a huge fan of Maartan Baas since day one. His work is wonderfully playful and unique, surprising and intelligent his work is found across the globe, even here in Shanghai you can go and see some of his designs that have been uniquely produced for Pearl Lam Design Gallery. Baas is a leader amongst his generation he has exhibited at the Victoria and Albert Museum in their “Brilliant” exhibition, he is a regular and favorite at Design Miami and Basel, winning designer of the year at the fair in 2009. His Clay collection is my personal favorite, however it is his Smoke Series that gained him international fame, where pieces of furniture are literally burnt and then preserved in a clear epoxy coating.
