'Yellow light' for Established & Sons by Scholten & Baijings

The Dutch studio Scholten & Baijings, founded in 2000 by graduate of the Design Academy in Eindhoven Stefan Scholten and autodidact Carole Baijings, presented various new products within different exhibitions during this year’s Salone del Mobile in Milan. Amongst them a series of pendant lights and a cabinet for the British manufacturer Established & Sons.

The ‘Amsterdam’ cabinet refers to a series of chests designed in the 1600–1700s Scholten & Baijings discovered while researching at Zuiderzee Museum after they were invited to design a collection that referenced pieces from the museum’s archive.

“It turns out when it was winter and farmers or fishermen couldn’t work, they would start painting their furniture with things from their surroundings, or collections that represented their status,” Scholten explains.

The façade of Amsterdam Armoir is decorated with their trademark grids, but open the doors and you are faced with six beautiful still-life photographs of the couple’s work: “We don’t have wealth money-wise— our wealth is in our work”, says Scholten. “So we decorated our cabinets with this.”

“In the Total Table Design project Dutch designers Scholten & Baijings present their vision for the art of dining. Royal Leerdam Crystal (glassware), Koninklijke Van Kempen & Begeer (cutlery) and the Audax Textile Museum Tilburg (table linen) joined forces to produce prototypes of their designs.

Scholten & Baijings realized the prototypes of their crockery at the European Ceramic Workcentre (EKWC) in Den Bosch.”
