‘truly dutch’ by Scholten & Baijings


In conjuction with Zuiderzeemuseum

‘conversation pieces for the interior’ are contemporary, decorated pieces of furniture, designed by Scholten & Baijings and made by master craftsmen and artists. The typically Dutch collection comprises five items of furniture that constitute a contemporary interpretation of five masterpieces from the Zuiderzeemuseum’s collection: ‘marker kast’ (marken cabinet), ‘hangoortafel’ (drop-leaf table), ‘flap-aan-de-wand’ (tilt-top table), ‘butte’ (wooden travel case) and ‘knopstoel’ (pegged chair).

The visual images have been applied to the objects using different decorative techniques. The ornamentations reflect the daily lives of the designers of these pieces and depicts interiors, objects and landscapes.

This new work carries the typical contemporary Scholten & Baijings signature: minimalist design and use of colour, layers, transparency, grids, structures, textures and patterns, frequently combined with master craftsmanship.

The designers are working with traditional crafts such as hand-painted work, screen printing, willow braiding and glass-blowing. 'Conversation pieces for the Interior' are unique items that will constitute the highlights of any interior.
