Scholten & Baijings
A new fabric for a new way of sitting. This new way of sitting will probably be more like lying. The seat height is lower than usual, and the furniture’s open design allows for more freedom of movement. Spatial dimensions, layered patterns and colour use are central considerations in the fabric design.
Scholten & Baijings’ first sketches and scale models consist of soft, rectangular ‘Daybeds’ that offer multiple uses: sitting, leaning against, lounging or lying down, alone or with each other. The use of futons, as customary in typically Japanese rooms, served as an important source of inspiration.
