Scholten & Baijings’s first ever book published by Phaidon, documents their design process – from the initial intricate drawings and sketches, through a multitude of models, prototypes, colour swatches and samples, to the finished product. Featuring a wealth of previously unpublished images from the designers’ personal archives, it takes the reader behind the scenes of this contemporary product design studio and allows intimate access to their working methods.
The book focuses on their relationships with different manufacturers and includes the stories behind collaborations with Maharam, MINI, Georg Jensen, 1616 / arita japan, Karimoku New Standard and Thomas Eyck, as well as including a complete list of works featuring all the projects they have designed to date. Opening with a foreword by Michael Maharam, with supporting text from design critic Louise Schouwenberg, the book’s design by Joost Grootens includes a unique die-cut jacket, individually-crafted tip-ins and fluorescent book block edges.
