Stefan Scholten and Carole Baijings established Scholten & Baijings, Studio for Design, in 2000.
They combine minimal forms and a balanced use of colour with traditional craft techniques and industrial production in a distinctive, almost un-Dutch design style. The finesse, entrancing colours and subtle use of materials in their work have earned considerable admiration in the international design world. Their work, both independent and commissioned, is collected and exhibited worldwide.
Scholten & Baijings design and develop interior products, for clients and manufacturers, including tables, chairs, lamps, carpets, colourful plaids, bed linen and tableware. They work for companies and institutions such as The Art Institute of Chicago, Victoria & Albert Museum, Zuiderzee Museum, Audax Textile Museum, Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Maharam, Established & Sons, HAY, Pastoe, RoyalVKB, Karimoku New Standard, 1616 / Arita Japan, Thomas Eyck, MINI, Georg Jensen and many more.
Scholten & Baijings recently received their third Dutch Design Award 2012, were nominated for Designer of the Year by Wallpaper in 2011 and were rewarded with the ELLE Decoration International Design Award (EDIDA) for Young Designer Talent in 2011.
They were awarded their second Wallpaper Design Award for Best Sideboard, for their Shift design in 2013 and an EDIDA for their Colour Porcelain collection for 1616 / Arita Japan. The collection was also nominated for Design of the Year 2013 by the Design Museum London.
