Maarten Baas (1978)
Charity: Amnesty International

He transformed one chair into a diptych. Like mirrored brothers with radically different personalities they stand side by side: the simple wooden peasant’s chair and the special, valuable chair made of synthetic clay. The clay chair is in line with his previous works, ‘Clay Furniture’ and ‘The Plain Collection’. Unique furniture modelled by hand. This shows the prints of the fingers that moulded the clay around a metal frame. Maarten Baas designed a chair for Amnesty International before: ‘The Empty Chair’. “Amnesty is an optimistic, hopeful symbol of freedom of speech. This is why I support their campaigns.”
