At Established and Sons, Baas launched his second collaboration with the glamorous English design label. Entitled ‘Standard Unique’, his new hand-made chairs explore the idea of creating variations within a mass produced context. Using the basis of an archetypal Dutch chair, Baas literally drew five versions, each composed of 16 components. By interchanging the different parts, the combinations of the elements allow each chair to unique every time.
