The designers Stefan Scholten (1972) and Carole Baijings (1973) move fluidly between the disciplines of art and design, and artisanal and industrial processes, to create a visually arresting collection of work which has strong references to the past yet is overtly of the current moment. The design duo established Scholten & Baijings, Studio for Design, in 2000. They continue to combine minimal forms and 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 them considerable admiration in the international design world. Their work, both independent and commissioned, is collected and exhibited worldwide.
After a successful collaboration of 19 years designers Carole Baijings and Stefan Scholten have decided to explore new artistic challenges individually. Both will work under their own moniker. The existing portfolio of Studio Scholten & Baijings will be supervised by Studio Stefan Scholten.
