Part of the chairs auctioned by Venduehuis The Hague was a series of chairs for charity specifically designed by Dutch Chair designers for the auction. The proceedings thereof would be donated to a good cause chosen by the designers themselves. The idea was that an existing chair would be reinterpreted. Maarten Baas choose Amnesty International as good cause and designed this one off clay chair after the example he took from an existing typical Dutch ladder-back chair that the Venduehuis auctions frequently. The Clay Chair was auctioned as lot no 150 for Euro 3,600.-

In Milan the Salone 2012 starts today. I had plans to visit the Salone, but have postponed them until next year. Just too busy with other stuff.
Maarten Baas will show these new pieces of his Plain Clay furniture collection in Ventura Lambrata. Photo’s Frank Tieleman.
The series is now named Plain Clay as the production process has changed after Maarten has made several pieces for the Groninger Museum (The museum for modern art in the city of Groningen, The Netherlands). They are now better withstanding public (ab)use.
