About the Designer
Maarten Baptist  

Designer and founder of JOINE Office for Design Maarten Baptist (1976) has an affinity with food and a keen 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. 'I try to keep a sense of wonder alive about the things around me and I translate that wonder into my products.' Fresh yet organic shapes pervade his work, bringing each piece a feel of timelessness. In order to keep an open mind, Baptist established a studio where 'anything can happen', and decided against having his own private workshop. Instead, he collaborates with the craftsmen or industries that he considers fit a particular project's needs. Capitalising on the advantages this objectivity brings, he stretches the limits of the production process and encourages craftsmen to push their capabilities. Baptist stays closely involved throughout; he remarks jokingly 'I am a designer, not a stylist'. A true perfectionist, he insists on a refined finish for all products, whether produced en masse or in a small edition. 'I make use of the fact that the smallest change can have a tremendous effect on the entire process.' Trusting his instincts, Baptist also launches products under his own label JOINE, because 'some products should just exist'. Not that he would dismiss an opportunity to have his designs taken into production by another label: 'I am open to any challenge or collaborative effort' - which explains his studio's name. With his steadily growing range of food related products, Baptist wants to challenge home cooks as well as chefs to experiment with food preparation and presentation, aiming to push the dinner table experience beyond taste. With his furniture he seeks to soothe small irritations around the house: not being able to comfortably watch tv while laying on the couch (Single Sofa) or a round table that feels awkward when pushed in a corner (Teardrop Table). In addition to his practice, Baptist designed the interior of TIME out bar in Moscow and initiated and curated the exhibition No Windmills, Cows or Tulips (commissioned by the cities of Eindhoven, Amsterdam and Rotterdam about Dutch Design, 2008) which showed in Tokyo and Eindhoven. In 2010 he launched his gallery and online shop SSHHOOPP, where he sells his own products as well as the work of artists and designers he admires. Graduating from Design Academy Eindhoven in 2002 (department Man & Living - senior lecturer Gijs Bakker, director Li Edelkoort) with the widely recognised '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. Over the years his work has been featured in magazines and newspapers including Wallpaper, Forbes and the New York Times. Baptist also participates in international design events such as the Salone del Mobile, Dutch Design Week, ICFF New York, the Moscow Design Week, 100% Design Tokyo and his work has been exhibited around the world. His products are in the permanent collection of MOMA San Fransisco and Cooper Hewitt New York. In 2010 he was awarded a Red Dot Award for his Single Sofa.

One of the most stunning cutlery designs you'll find anywhere. Maarten Baptist has designed the Open Air range specifically with open-air dining in mind. Every item in the Open Air cutlery set is made of high quality stainless steel for an attractive finish and maximum durability. The open center part of each cutlery makes it lightweight and aesthetically pleasing to the eyes.

Open Air

Susan from Salado, TX– Verified Buyer

Love Open Air, is there a teaspoon? I just ordered and received the iced teaspoon, and I have the cereal (larger bowl) spoon. I'm inquiring about the spoon that is traditionally called a teaspoon.
