Bringing to mind a magnificent world of entertainment, circuses and furniture fairs, Maarten Baas’s newest solo exhibition will bring an extravaganza-like element to this year’s Salone del Mobile.

The exhibition Baas is in Town will showcase a range of objects varying from new designs to improved older creations. Baas collaborated with Ventura Projects for the exhibition, which will be the first satellite hub of Ventura Lambrate, outside of their headquarters area.

We will show a mix of objects, varying from exclusive new products, to improvised mock-ups in polystyrene foam, all in the theme of entertainment, circus and furniture fairs, says Baas.

Along with Baas’s own work, the exhibition will showcase new collaborations with various artists, designers and companies, including product designer Bertjan Pot and John Körmeling amongst others.

A main focus of Baas is in Town is a preview of Baas’s latest public space design, “Koopgoot Collection”, which represents especially made public furniture for the “Koopgoot” - the main shopping street in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

Baas is in Town will take place from 8 April to 13 April during Salone del Mobile 2014 in Milan, Italy.
