Design by Maarten Baas, 2009.
Darkly distinctive, the Smoke Dining Armchair is created by burning the chair frame — literally. The beauty and character of burned wood is captured in a long lasting epoxy, creating the unique sensation of sitting on burnt furniture. A comfortable extension to the Smoke series, with the addition of armrests to make dining in style even more cozy. Black leather upholstery.
Each piece may differ due to the process used for production.
Material(s): Smoked solid wood finished with epoxy resin, leather upholstery
Designer: Maarten Baas
Born in Arnsberg, Germany, 1978 but moved to the Netherlands in 1979 where he grew up. In 2002 Baas graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven with two designs including a series of charred furniture, popularly known as the Smoke series and an ingenious sundial, displaying the hours in shadow. His works were nominated for the René Smeets and Melkweg design awards.
Three of Baas' Smoke works have been reproduced by avant-garde Dutch design firm, Moooi. Thanks to the international exposure of successful exhibitions in Milan, London, and Paris, the Smoke series is considered by museums, critics, collectors and the design-informed public an iconic collection of contemporary design.
Maarten Baas lives and works in Waalre, near Eindhoven, in the Southern region of the Netherlands. It is there where he produces his handmade furniture and is continually developing new concepts and designs.View other products by Maarten Baas
