Scholten & Baijings 

Founded in 2000 by industrial designers Stefan Scholten and Carole Baijings, the studio is known for its minimalist aesthetic and rich explorations in graphics and color informed by investigations of hand craftsmanship. Baijings will discuss the uses of color, form, and material in the studio’s work; the guiding ethos and philosophy of the design process, and the nuances of art and design in practice. Scholten & Baijings designs have been highlighted in major museums around the world, including Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, the V&A, The Art Institute of Chicago, and the TextielMuseum and the Rijksmuseum in the Netherlands.

Exhibition:

Scholten & Baijings also have an installation at the Cooper Hewitt as part of their workshop effort, which will be there until November 28th.

An interactive installation in the museum’s Process Lab, Scholten & Baijings: Lessons from the Studio invites visitors to explore the experimental design process of the award-winning contemporary industrial design studio. Founded by Stefan Scholten & Carole Baijings and based in the Netherlands, the studio combines craft techniques with industrial design practices to create tableware, furniture, and textiles. Examples of Scholten & Baijings objects from the permanent collection and on loan from the studio are on view with commentary from the design team on the development of new ideas and how making their own colors and materials guides their decision-making during the design process. Several of the objects on view are available for touch exploration and visitors may also perform their own experiments with color at two interactive stations.
