Maarten Baas – New Times. Exhibition Tour
Featuring exhibition footage, this short film shows our the current temporary exhibition
“Maarten Baas – New Times” and is exploring the designers series “Real Time”.
Maarten Baas born in 1978 in Arnsberg, is considered one of the most influential Dutch designers of the early 21st century. He began his studies in 1996 at the Design Academy Eindhoven and was since the beginning primarily concerned with furniture design beyond industrial production and on balancing between art and design.
Considered rebellious, playful, intellectual, and artistic, his work earned him an autonomous position in the design scene early in his creative career. Baas’ varied approach and understanding of design is also evident in the series »Real Time« (since 2009), in which he devotes himself to the theme of time.
By combining different disciplines such as performance, film, technology, art and design, he manages to rethink clocks.
