Although the shapes of the Inner Circle collection appear playful and naive, the finishing is stunning. ‘If you create a loose shape, it is necessary to put extra effort in the detailing’, Baas states. ‘If not, your design will look scruffy and will lose its appeal’. Baas also contrasted the organic shapes with a toned-down color palette. ‘I wanted to keep it stylish. When a chef does the plating of a dish, he does it with great care but avoids perfect geometry. There has to be a certain schwung to it. I created Inner Circle in the same way’. Inner Circle is an entire set of tableware objects, from plates in stoneware, trays in wood to water carafes and glasses.
