Maarten Baptist, Lucky Love chair

Maarten Baptist’s Lucky Love chair embodies, says the designer, «Dutch craftsmanship, and you can see and feel the time and attention we all put into it. The first impression is a comfortable happy inviting product. The clear use of materials shows how it’s made. This part is the Dutch design part. » First exhibited at the Eat Drink Design venue in Eindhoven during the Dutch Design Week, the Lucky Love chair also claims « some Scandinavian characteristics in the black frame and the real wood that is used », and a Japanese touch in the shapes of the heart and the rounded “fingers”. It seems like Pierre Guariche or Donald Knorr ‘s 1950’s creations might have influenced Maarten Baptist here.One limited edition series of five pieces have been launched  (two of them already bought by, respectively, a Japanese design collector and a Dutch family). Designer Maarten Baptist hopes commercialization will start in early 2011. Cross fingers and wait for Lucky Love to hit Paris…
