Inner Circle is a large set of tableware objects, from plate to water can, contriving that typical human and playful Maarten Baas feel. Every object is a materialisation of imperfect circles that Baas drew by hand.
The irregular shapes combine well, making it easy to create an organic composition on the dinner table. ‘When a chef does the plating of a dish, he does it with great care but avoids perfect geometry’, Baas explains. ‘There has to be a certain schwung to it. I created Inner Circle in the same way’.

From 1979, Baas grew up in Burgh-Haamstede and Hemmen located in the southwest and central region of the Netherlands. After graduating from high school, he began studying at the Design Academy Eindhoven in 1996. Baas is considered to be one of the most influential Dutch designers of the beginning of the 21st century. He is often described as an “author designer,” of which his works lie on the boundaries between art and design. His work is known as rebellious, playful, intellectual, theatrical and artistic. He has gained an autonomous position in the design field, and his work varies from conceptual designs, limited editions, production design, installations, public space, architecture, interior design, theater design and performances.
Valerie Objects is an Antwerp-based design label initiated by Axel van den Bossche (CEO of Serax) and art director Veerle Wenes (owner of the Valerie Traan gallery, Antwerp), combining their professional and personal tastes for all things good and beautiful.
Although valerie_objects has outgrown its life as a side-project and has become a young but mature global design platform, the philosophy remains the same: presenting everyday tools and objects that have a unique appearance.
Valerie Objects understands the designer’s drive to develop a durable signature style, as well as the consumer’s desire to connect with a patiently selected object. the label stands for unique yet accessible creations, designed for daily use. many owners develop a special relationship with their chosen object; they get more attached to it as it becomes part of their personal story.
AVG (Average) is the balance between design and function. The name closely reflects our philosophy; to source everyday, useful products from around the world that serve a meaningful purpose in our customers lives, while adding to the overall beauty of their daily life.
Founded by designer Chris Hanz with Morgan Maisano in 2016, today in addition to the online store you can find the Average showroom on West Queen West in Toronto.
The collection is hand-picked by the founders and includes unique handmade pieces and mass produced items and can range in form between apparel to furniture, but maintains a common thread of timeless items designed with honesty, thought and integrity.
