For last year’s Milan Furniture Fair, Scholten & Baijings were commissioned by the Zuiderzee Museum to create “Conversation Pieces for the Interior” using five furniture archetypes from the museum’s collection. The couple used high-contrast graphics, saturated colors, and quirky personal details to give the items a contemporary feel. This bright yellow slatted chair, known as a knopstoel, depicts construction cranes and Centraal Station — i.e. the view from their new studio.
