Marteen Baas at Moooi last Design Week

Sofà like this designed by Marteen Baas, Moooi

Marteen Baas– It is like if famous people would be bags full of words spoken by others; like if they would be  an hologram to whom is given one or another tag. Then, when someone meets them, she find  that they are someone else. About Marteen Baas, the  whGroninger’s museum dedicated a retrospective. It is Hide & Seek, which after having been at Ghent’s Design Museum in Belgium, it will be in Israel at the Design Museum Holon the next 27th november. But for him works what Bulgakov said about Pushkin, he dindn’t need a literary man membership to recognize him as a writer, just read his words. And Marteen Baas is a real creative, like his design or not. It will be that it is a feeling subject. When I met him to Moooi, in the last design week, he was one of those people who seems make breathe easier humans, he transmits freedom, a chance that in the world there is even a place for those who think different, it seems heart enlarge itself. But then Design Week ends up, and the usual pulp made by greyness & power get back.
