This week, Herman Miller published the second in their interview series with designers:
For nearly 20 years, designers Stefan Scholten and Carole Baijings have worked collaboratively across disciplines, designing everything from furniture and textiles to exhibitions and graphics. The pair begins the process for each new design with a simple mandate: to contribute something to the world that is original, useful, and desirable. Behind their elegantly-designed products is a practice steeped in intensive materials exploration and study. By manufacturing models and materials to their own specifications, and custom-blending hues to satisfy their keen sense of color, Scholten and Baijings marry an atelier approach with the capabilities of mass production to prove there’s a place for craft within industry.
All of the questions for this interview were taken from a famous interview with Ray & Charles Eames in 1969 – but the answers are all Scholten & Baijings.
It’s truly worth a read. Take a look at the full interview right here!
