The “Vegetables” range of Scholten & Baijings is handcrafted out of fabric by the designers themselves.

The project was a way for them to explore the actual production side of design, as opposed to handing it over to a craftsman. They dyed the fabrics, modelled the forms, and made the structures and skins by hand.

Although the vegetables have no practical function, the Dutch design duo hope they will evoke a feeling of unexpected pleasure, even start a conversation.
