Scholten & Baijings will share the studio’s investigations into the dynamic interaction of color through their Maharam Darning Sampler project. Participants will use various materials to explore how layering, opacity, and proximity can transform relationships between colors.

Founded in 2000 by industrial designers Stefan Scholten and Carole Baijings, the studio is known for its minimalist aesthetic and rich explorations in graphics and color informed by investigations of hand craftsmanship. Works by the atelier have been highlighted in major museums around the world, including Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, the V&A, The Art Institute of Chicago, and Rijksmuseum.
