15 Minutes With Maarten Baas
10th March 2023
Carpenters Workshop Gallery opened in West Hollywood on Santa Monica Boulevard a year ago and quickly became known worldwide as a leader in art and design. I had the pleasure of speaking with Dutch designer Maarten Baas on his new exhibition, Play Time, which investigates aspects of youth and conceptions of time. A multifaceted creator, Baas designs interactive learning activities with children in the Netherlands to produce performance-based works that track time in various cities. In this show, he also showcases the astonishing Close Parity collection of furniture that appears to defy gravity.
