Especially for the 15th anniversary of Dutch Design Week (DDW), designer Maarten Baas curates an exhibition exploring the theme of time, in which the boundary between art and design is deliberately blurred. ‘MAARTEN BAAS MAKES TIME’ is a mix of design, visual art, performing arts and gastronomy.
As DDW ambassador, Maarten Baas gives his interpretation of design. For MAARTEN BAAS MAKES TIME, he collaborates with a host of artists and effortlessly combines disciplines and ideas into a kaleidoscope of tantalising experiences. The heart of the exhibition is formed by work from Dutch designers like Atelier NL, Jurgen Bey, Joost van Bleiswijk and Kiki van Eijk; in co-operation with theatre maker Joris van Midde (De Kwekerij).
Textile manufacturer Vlisco, ceramics producer Cor Unum and VPRO are partners for the exhibition. With photographs and illustrations, Baas provides an exclusive preview his book ‘Hide & Seek’ that will be published next year. The world premiere of his recent work for the Carpenters Workshop Gallery will also be exhibited.
In a temporary restaurant, designed entirely by Maarten Baas, Sergio Herman serves up a culinary menu with his signature dishes. The head chef of the Michelin star restaurants PureC in Cadzand and The Jane in Antwerp is among the top of the culinary world.
‘MAARTEN BAAS MAKES TIME, from October 22 to 30 during DDW, will take place in the former Van der Meulen Ansems garage (VDMA) on the Vestdijk 25/27 in the heart of Eindhoven. The site is being made available by the Municipality of Eindhoven for this very special initiative.
