Designer and founder of JOINE Office for Design, Maarten Baptist has an affinity with food and an interest in the restaurant business. He creates both delicate tabletop products and an extensive range of furniture. Baptist develops icons for day-to-day activities, each with an elegant sense of presence. Often a tiny detail will be off-key, making his pieces charmingly different. Graduating from Design Academy Eindhoven in 2002 with the widely recognized “Open Air” cutlery, Baptist’s career got off to a swift start. After WATdesign (a collaborative studio he founded with Jan Habraken) folded in 2008, Baptist launched JOINE Office for Design. He collaborates with the craftsmen or industries that fit a particular project’s needs. Capitalizing on the advantages this objectivity brings, he stretches the limits of the production process and encourages craftsmen to push their capabilities. A true perfectionist, he insists on a refined finish for all products, whether produced en masse or in a small edition.
