Maarten Baas Makes Time at Dutch Design Week
Dutch Design Week kicked off on Saturday, and the event will bring thousands of designers — not to mention hundreds of thousands of visitors — to Eindhoven from 22-30 October.
Among the many exhibitions throughout the city, this year sees the expansion of the DDW Ambassador program with a major presentation at the VDMA building, in honor of this year’s ambassador. Maarten Baas Makes Time includes iconic projects by the renowned Dutch designer alongside works by dozens of other artists and designers. The common thread, of course, is time — a reference to Baas’ infamous “Sweepers Clock” (on view in the exhibition, of course) — with works by the likes of Studio Makkink & Bey, Mieke Meijer, Atelier NL, and many more.
Maarten Baas Makes Time is also the occasion for the debut of latest project, “Close Parity”. An evolution of Baas’s signature aesthetic, the collection of five cabinets will be unveiled at the exhibition. See them at the VDMA building at Vestdjik 25–27 — open to the public from 11.00–18.00 daily — until 30 October.
