Dutch Design Week , which opened this weekend, is always chock full of forward-thinking design ideas on display. This year, design duo Scholten & Baijings are the event's ambassadors – a fitting choice as their prolific output of products has garnered them international attention for some years now.
Their design aesthetic is characterised by a distinctly subtle use of form, colour and materiality. This is achieved through an “atelier” way of working, explains Stefan Scholten, one half of the husband-and-wife team: “The way we work in our workshop is very special. We create new forms by working with paper models. We develop all our own materials and all our own colours.”
We round up five of their projects that exemplify their approach.
