Designers, partners, and husband-and-wife team Stefan Scholten (born 1972) and Carole Baijings (born 1973) established the Scholten & Baijings studio in 2000. The Netherlands natives met while working on the design and production of a creatives club in Amsterdam. Scholten is a graduate of the Design Academy in Eindhoven (1996), and Baijings is an autodidact in the design field. The pair focus primarily on interior projects, and their work includes tables, chairs, lamps, carpets, tableware, and textiles. Their designs are characterized by a combination of clean, minimal forms, balanced colors, layering, industrial production, and craft techniques.
Clients include the Art Institute of Chicago, the Victoria & Albert Museum, Georg Jensen, Established & Sons, HAY, Thomas Eyck, MINI, and 1616/Arita Japan. Between 2006 and 2011, the pair taught at the Design Academy Eindhoven in the school’s Atelier program. They have received three Dutch Design Awards to date, and were honored with the ELLE Decoration International Design Award (EDIDA) for Young Designer Talent in 2011. Their work is collected and exhibited across the globe.
Scholten & Baijings live and work in Amsterdam.
