Trailer: Scholten & Baijings on thinking in colour

Husband-and-wife team Scholten & Baijings tell us how they transform sterile mass-produced items into designs with a personal touch.

“We create new forms by working with paper models and we call this the ‘atelier way of working’,” says Stefan Scholten in this talk from Design Indaba Conference 2014.

Stefan Scholten and Carole Baijings have been designing together since 2000. They’ve created a signature style in the world of Dutch product design: their work embraces minimalism but remains rich in detail and expression due to their skilful finishing, distinctive palette of colours and combinations of different materials. 

They have been commissoned by Ikea, Hay, Moooi, Georg Jensen, Thomas Eyck, Maharam and MINI, among other high-profile brands.

“I think that it’s our aim to create a product that will contribute something unique to the world.”
