With works teetering between art and design, and known for a rebelliously playful and clever spin, Maarten Baas is considered among the most important Dutch creators in modern design. So it’s no surprise his work is part of the collections at MoMA and the V&A. His flatware for Antwerp-based Valerie Objects adheres to his ethos. The unusually jagged edge of the knife of this flatware collection gives it a Brutalist sharpness all its own. The undulating surfaces of the handles counter the “flat” in flatware. Service for 4, with each place setting of knife, fork, tablespoon and coffee spoon available in a choice of dishwasher-safe finishes, and contained in a wooden box.

With a mission to put a unique twist on everyday items, Belgium brand Valerie Objects was established by Axel Van Den Bossche, the CEO of homeware design firm Serax, and Antwerp gallery owner Veerle Wenes. Starting with a focus on cutlery and tableware, the company has outgrown its life as a side project to become a young but complete global design platform, allowing world-famous designers, architects and artists to translate their signature styles into tangible modern design objects.
Now encompassing textiles, furniture, home accessories and designer lighting, Valerie Objects' collection includes coveted pieces like Muller Van Severen's Rocking Chair and Hanging Light, as well as unique cutlery designs by Maarten Baas and Nendo and glassware from award-winning artist Chris Kabel. The couple Fien Muller and Hannes Van Severen were one of the first to sign with Valerie Objects and are considered one of the most image-defining European design teams around. with elegant objects that appear to be conceived almost spontaneously. Like the rest of the brand's offerings curated by co-founder and art director Veerle, the work stands out as the mark of authentic thinkers.
