by Maarten Baas from Moooi

smoke dining armchair

Design Maarten Baas, 2002
Burnt wood, epoxy resin, fired retardant foam, leather upholstery
Made in The Netherlands by Moooi

Pieces of furniture are literally burned, after which they are preserved in a clear epoxy coating. The beauty and character of burned wood is now captured in a long lasting material, creating the strange sensation of sitting on burnt furniture. The Smoke armchair is a comfortable extension of the smoke collection. A dining chair with the addition of armrests to make dining in style even cozier.

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".

The Smoke series includes armchair, dining chair, lounge chair and chandelier. Each item from the Smoke series share the unfamiliar and untamed finish that is categorized by fire. Each piece is unique and may differ due to the process used for production. The smoke chair is upholstered in black leather and has a secret repair kit underneath the seat in case of emergencies.

Maarten Baas

After studying at Milan Polytechnic and graduating from the Design Academy, Baas designed the “Smoke” series of burned furniture which was nominated for awards and adopted into the Moooi line. Baas creates unique pieces that are handmade and explore the boundaries of design without merely just breaking the rules.
Moooi is named for the Dutch word "beautiful". The third 'O' in the name stands for extra value in beauty. Moooi has produced work from Bertjan Pot, Maarten Baas and Studio Job. Marcel Wanders is responsible for the overall design process.
