Maarten Baas Biography

Dutch designer Maarten Bass (b. 1978) breaks the boundaries of traditional Chinese woodcarving in both concept and execution. He remakes common objects—in this case, clothes hangers and combs—in wood and transforms their appearances by adding protruding details such as extra-long teeth coming out of the combs and extra racks attached to the hangers. His works highlight the characteristics of the material itself, allowing the spirituality of the wood to become part of the works' narrative.
