Maarten Bass

Surrounded by all kinds of objects,
Baas created an assemblage, in which
all objects gained a new function. A
chair became a bookshelf; a lampshade
became a vase, a violin a coat rack.
For this design, Baas collaborates
with several second hand stores in
the region of Eindhoven, saving products
from the rubbish container which could
not be sold in the shop. Since the
products are always different, every
“Hey, chair be a bookshelf!” is a
unique piece. The often weak second
hand products are reinforced by
polyester and coated by hand, in a
Poly-Urethane coating.
