Inspired by Scholten & Baijings’ Paper Porcelain project, participants will create prototypes of everyday objects by taking cues from the materials makeup.

All materials will be provided. Participants are encouraged to bring their favorite cup or mug to reference during program.

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.
