Design Museum Gent presents Hide & Seek, the first major solo exhibition of the work of Maarten Baas. The exhibition showcases the versatile talent of one of the Netherlands’ best-known designers. Ever since he graduated, producing a series of charred furniture for his graduation project, Baas has gone against the grain of traditions and expectations, favouring provocation with his bold and adventurous moves. In this work, the new always clashes with the old, technology with craftsmanship and acceleration with stillness. It is simply impossible to pin down the Houdini of Dutch Design. You must seek him somewhere between reason and emotion, between nature and culture, between freedom and limitations.
