Design Maarten Baas, 2016
Natural oiled oak, bronze
Made in The Netherlands by Moooi

The dynamic of wheels in motion has reached new heights of creativity. A cartoon-like drawing of a car with an elevated roof vrooms to life as a super cool side table. Its top is the perfect surface to park a pot of tea, while books and magazines can take residence behind its windows. A vase of flowers? On its trunk of course!

Maarten Baas is a Dutch designer who graduated from Design Academy Eindhoven in 1996. In 2000 he studied for several months at the Politecnico di Milano. In June 2002 he graduated at the Design Academy a series of burned furniture called "Smoke". Maarten is searching for the boundaries of design, without leaning on the regular "do's and don'ts".

Turbo is offered in two sizes and features natural oiled oak wood with bronze wheels.

24" h | 13.8" w | 24" d

Maarten Baas

Maarten Baas (b. 1978) made his first design, “Knuckle,” as a student at the Design Academy Eindhoven. This candle holder for candles of various sizes was taken into production by Pol’s Potten. He also sold the first unique piece of the now well known “Hey, Chair, Be A Bookshelf” furniture during this time. After some time studying at Milan Polytechnic and graduating from the Design Academy, he designed the “Smoke” series of burned furniture, which was nominated for awards and adopted into the Moooi line, as well as the personal collection of Philippe Starck. “Smoke” pieces would later be commissioned for every room of the Gramercy Park Hotel. Baas creates unique pieces that are each handmade, though produced in series, and explore the boundaries of design without merely just breaking the rules.
Founded in 2001 by complementing personalities Marcel Wanders and Casper Vissers, Moooi is named after the native Dutch word for “beautiful”. According to the company, “the third ‘o’ in the brand name stands for an extra value in terms of beauty & uniqueness.” In additon to Wanders’ work, Moooi has produced work from Bertjan Pot, Maarten Baas, Ross Lovegrove and Studio Job. Ultimately, Wanders is responsible for the overall design selection process.

The Most Turbo Table
, more than a month ago.
After my recent windfall in the blockchain boom, I was ready to find the most turbo of tables to hold all my books and "steamed clams".
I've tried other tables for holding "steamed hams" but while all of them held, none really had that turbo-touch that I'm looking for. For example, I recently hosted a fancy "steamed clam" dinner party, for my friend Chalmers, and everyone who saw this table exclaimed 'oh, how turbo!'.
When I burned my "steamed hams" it was easy to use this table to turbo over to a nearby cheese, and onion beefy-sandwich shop. Nobody could tell because the table was just that turbo.
