Fantastical Furniture: Designer Maarten Baas

The words fantastical and eccentric come to mind when exploring the works of Dutch designer Maarten Baas. A highly-talented visionary, Baas produces bespoke pieces for leading hotels, restaurants, galleries, and select collectors around the world. His collaboration with Mitterrand + Cramer in Geneva Switzerland looks straight out of a Tim Burton movie. Sculptural, whimsical, and lush, the collection showcases the designer’s avant-garde approach and focus on authentic craftsmanship.

Apart from the “Grey Derivations Desk Light” which was partially produced using a mould, all other works from the series are handmade unique pieces, with one artist proof which will be slightly different and exclusively produced for Museums or prominent collections.
