AddAddaligned by maarten baas
There are few designers who embrace spontaneity and madness in the creative process as Baas does. After creating a myriad of tableware for valerie_objects, Baas has now designed a collection of outdoor chairs and a table. ‘The starting point was to make a fully functional design piece that looks like it has been sketched by hand’, Baas states. Baas redefined the typical outdoor furniture consisting of metal frames and wooden slats by sketching the slats with a pencil on paper and then meticulously recreating them in real life in powdercoated aluminium.
AddAddWabi Sabi tray collection
The Wabi Sabi collection of trays is inspired by nature. Designer Dawn Sweitzer explains: “While traveling through the blue ridge mountains, the vista became almost like a layered water color painting. Sky blues, grey and mist colors layered the horizon. As the sun was setting it took on a whole new color palette with warm autumn hues like sienna, sand, sepia.” Or how you can find beauty in the not-so-perfect.
