About the installation

An interactive installation in the museum’s Process Lab, Scholten & Baijings: Lessons from the Studio invites visitors to explore the experimental design process of the award-winning contemporary industrial design studio. Founded by Stefan Scholten & Carole Baijings and based in the Netherlands, the studio combines craft techniques with industrial design practices to create tableware, furniture, and textiles. Examples of Scholten & Baijings objects from the permanent collection and on loan from the studio are on view with commentary from the design team on the development of new ideas and how making their own colors and materials guides their decision-making during the design process. Several of the objects on view are available for touch exploration and visitors may also perform their own experiments with color at two interactive stations.
