Designers in Focus
Stefan Scholten born in 1972 and Carole Baijings born in 1973 established Scholten & Baijings, Studio for Design, in 2000.
Stefan Scholten is a graduate of the Design Academy in Eindhoven and Carole Baijings is a self-taught maverick in the design field.
In their designs Scholten & Baijings make use of grids, light effects, colour, transparency, layered patterns with unique and amazing effect. In addition, minimal design and a keen eye for detail characterise their work. The duo has gained international recognition for their graphic designs using a combination of soft pastels and and bright fluorescent colours.
For the London Design Festival 2013: they set up a still life depicting a dinner party in progress at the V&A museum for the London Design Festival. They installed a large dining table set for a party of guests in the ornate gilded Norfolk House Music Room in the British Galleries of the V & A museum. Cutlery is skewed, glasses are half full and food is strewn across the table, as if the party is in progress but all the guests have vanished – a quirky concept showing their products in situ and in such a grand setting.
