Karimoku New Standard
Scholten & Baijings
Dutch designers Stefan Scholten and Carole Baijings are masters of colour. Their trademark use of delicate pastels, neutrals, flashes of fluorescent and precise, graphic lines adorn collections for brands such as Hay, Schönbuch and Thomas Eyck to name just a few. The pieces shown here are their designs for Japanese brand Karimoku New Standard and also my personal favourites from their portfolio.
The Colour Wood side tables (above) explore craft, tradition and the characteristics of thinned wood. The texture of the wood, colour stains and printed graphic patterns are overlaid to create a graphic mix of contemporary techniques and traditional craft.
The Colour platters are a set of three different-sized plates made of Japanese chestnut wood and printed with distinctive geometric patterns. They are designed to be used as serving trays or as a decorative centre piece.
Space saving and handy, the Colour stools are created by highly skilled craftsmen using traditional wood working techniques. The seat of the stool features a minimal and precise pattern of transparent and vivid colours.
