Hey chair, be a bookshelf

Surrounded by all kinds of objects, Baas created an assemblage, in which all objects gained a new function. A chair became a bookshelf; a lampshade became a vase, a violin a coat rack. For this design, Baas collaborates with several second hand stores in the region of Eindhoven, saving products from the rubbish container which could not be sold in the shop. Since the products are always different, every “Hey, chair be a bookshelf!” is a unique piece. The often weak second hand products are reinforced by polyester and coated by hand, in a Poly-Urethane coating.
