‘Run & Hide’, by Maarten Baas at Carpenters Workshop Gallery

26 January - 03 March '17

For its first solo show at the new London space, Carpenters Workshop Gallery is pleased to announce the exhibition ‘Run & Hide’, by Dutch designer Maarten Baas. The exhibition will take place from Wednesday 26 January to 3 March 2017 providing a taste of what’s to come in the first major restrospective of the designer’s work, ‘Hide and Seek’ at the Groninger Museum in the Netherlands running from 18 February to 24 September. The exhibition at Carpenters Workshop Gallery will cover four major collections of the designers’ career.

Firstly, the exhibition will bring Maarten Baas’ ‘Carapace’ collection to the UK for the first time. The series is inspired by the protective, decorative or camouflaging shell found on the back of animals such as beetles and turtles. shown for the first time at Carpenters Workshop Gallery New York in 2016, it will be the first time they have been presented in London. The exhibition will include a desk, cabinet, armchair and cupboard.

Secondly, the gallery will present two of Maarten Baas’ celebrated Clay chairs. Usually available as an open edition, for the design’s 10th anniversary, a special bronze version has been created. The gallery will present the work in both patinated and polished bronze.

The gallery will also show an example of the designer’s famous ‘Real Time’ collection. The Grandfather clock in bronze is one of Maarten Baas’ early clocks which incorporates a 12-hour video of a man drawing and erasing the minute and hour hands of a clock face onto a screen. The series has become iconic and examples can be seen in museums and major collections around the world. Schiphol airport, Amsterdam’s central airport recently commissioned the designer to create a large-scale version for its main hall. An example will also be on display at the Kasteel Van Gaasbeek near Brussels from 18 April to 6 June 2017.

Finally, one major piece of the ‘Smoke’ series will be on view. Entirely carbonized with a blow-torch, the designer marks the beauty of human intervention and turns defaults into aesthetic qualities. The pieces of the ‘Smoke’ series created for his graduation show at Design Academy Eindhoven in 2002, have entered prestigious collections such as the Victoria & Albert Museum and the Groninger Museum.
