Phaidon's Reproducing Scholten & Baijings offers a comprehensive view of the designs and working methods of Stefan Scholten and Carole Baijings. The book focuses particularly on the Amsterdam-based designers’ creative process, with each step from initial sketches and prototypes to the final product illustrated with previously unpublished photos from the designers’ personal archives. The comprehensive monograph also explores the designers' relationship with various manufacturers and reveals the stories behind the collaborations.
Stefan Scholten and Carole Baijings established their Amsterdam-based studio Scholten & Baijings in 2000, and are now widely regarded as one of the most exciting, innovative and dynamic design duos in Europe. Renowned for their sensitive and subtle yet functional products, their striking and often unexpected use of colour and their exquisitely crafted objects, they have applied their distinctive style to everything from ceramics and silverware to textiles and even a concept car.
