maarten baptist: everyday scenery



maarten on his ‘single sofa’

It was the opening of skitsch, a new Italian design brand that was launched during milan design week. somebody introduced me to maarten baptist. I knew his name and I remember him in context with watdesign, a design studio which he founded with a colleague after graduating at the design academy. but In 2008 maarten founded joine, an office for design. watdesign was disbanded. obviously it wasn’t easy to work together when one of the founders was based in new york.

now, just one year later, maarten was exhibiting his range of products in his own studio during dutch design week, which finished yesterday.

lisa klappe, an antwerp-based photographer did the press images of all products. they used the office as a photo studio and left the setting for the visitors of the design week. The setting consisted of joine products on 4 different colour backgrounds in every site of the square room.
