Maarten Baas exhibition Catalysis for Life in Japan was already a few time ago, but the art pieces the design duo create are timeless, so today we decided to share it anyway, as it always feels good to share awesome designs.
The exhibition entitled, Catalysis for Life: New Language of Dutch Art & Design, was a group exhibition of 4 artists/designers from the Netherlands; Tomoko Take, Martijn Engelbregt, Maarten Baas en Atelier Ted Noten. On behalf of these last two studios Organisation in Design was responsible for all communication and the project management.
The exhibition questions the relationship between people and objects. Maarten Baas, regarded by many to be one of the most important designers of the moment, explores notions of interpersonal communications and questions the relationship between people and objects.
Baas’s work is said to act as a catalyst to bring “about a dynamic chemical transformation in our attitudes to life”. The themes and media that these designers use in their work differ considerably and they are “more or less diametrically opposed when it comes to the contexts they choose for their presentations”. The exhibition will feature Baas’s works, including Smoke, Clay, Real Time, the Shell and ohers. Baas is not concerned about the classification of art and design, but focuses instead on following “his imagination uncompromisingly”. His designs combine the qualities that have made Dutch Design famous, with their sculptural qualities and the recalcitrant use of material.
