He was named one of the ten important designers of the next decade by Philippe Starck during the last Maison & Objet Fair and received the coveted "Grand Prix de la Creation de la Ville de Paris" Baron's work was featured in the exhibition "Downsideup by Fabrica" at the American Folk Art Museum in New York City.
