STUDIO MAARTEN BAAS

*All work here is exclusively by and for Studio Maarten Baas, NL.

I worked for Maarten in Holland for 3 years during which time he became Miami/Basel designer of the year.

I was focused on prototyping new collections, production of pieces, installing collections and live performances around the world.
