"An essential aspect of our collaboration is that graceful feminine intuitive talent merges with sturdy masculine creativity."
Scholten & Baijings
Stefan Scholten (1972) and Carole Baijings (1973) combine minimal forms and balanced use of colour with traditional craft techniques and industrial production in a distinctive, almost un-Dutch design style.
Scholten & Baijings build a bridge between designer, artisan and manufacturer. Their close involvement in the production process results in design with both a perfect finish and a personal signature. This perfection is the result of their comprehensive vision of the genesis of the product, executed in close collaboration with skilled craftspeople and leading producers. Widely differing ways of working are translated by Scholten & Baijings into products that are at once functional and individual.
The finesse, entrancing colours and subtle use of materials in their work have earned considerable admiration in the international design world.
