Hong Kong Tatler Homes - - EUROCUCINA 2018 - BY MAARTEN BAAS

Dutch fur­ni­ture de­signer Maarten Baas found in­spi­ra­tion in an­cient fos­sils found in the Nether­lands of small crea­tures with sharp teeth. The Baas de­signs—BHSD-001, BHSD002 and BHSD-003—are flat-look­ing mon­sters with small eyes, short feet and spiky teeth, and their tex­tured glass re­calls the sur­face of fos­sils. “I thought they looked very mon­strous, and no­body knows how they could have survived be­cause they have sharp teeth but not a big enough stom­ach to digest their prey,” says Baas. “I felt I was more like an in­ter­me­di­ary be­tween the sci­en­tist and Lasvit.”
