The Nationaal Glasmuseum invited Bas Kosters to be part of the exhibition 'Ispirazione'. They requested Bas to respond to the work of Sottsass. He was inspired by the humor, freedom and joy that the works of Sottsass embody.

Bas can appreciate the exuberance in the work of the Italian: "They say in fashion that you should limit yourself to one statement piece in an outfit. I advocate the opposite!"
