Maarten Baas, acquired the reputation of being one of the most influential Dutch designers of the 21st century. His works are most known for being rebellious, playful, theatrical, artsy and often embedding an intellectual twist. Baas and Lensvelt’s initial collaboration started in 2017 when launching a collection of customizable chairs at Salone del Mobile in Milan, featuring irregularly shaped backrests with a hand-drawn aesthetic.
Today the chair forms the basis of the expanded 101 Chair family and is available in several variations. This includes models with stackable frames and optional armrests, as well as high and low barstool versions. Each chair is available with a choice of one of Baas' eight distinctive backrests, which all evoke loose hand drawings of human faces.
