to the artists, designers and craftspeople who think I call their work kitsch... this is NOT the case, it refers to my own work

design recycling - Maarten Baas

While walking through the 'Nine Streets' area in Amsterdam I passed this hairdressers shop and spotted these tables through the window. So I popped in to ask if I could take a picture. The tables are from designer Maarten Baas and are made from second hand furniture. He has this range called "Hey Chair, be a Bookshelf".
Right up my alley!! One of a kind design, unique pieces.
I do love his 'Eppur Si Muove' referring to Galileo also, a sculpture that needs the sun to get its significance. I could take the picture from his site but I do feel uncomfortable doing that, so I only use my own pictures.
UPDATE : another post on Maarten Baas HERE
